Kickstart Women Mariners! Support Jack Tar!

Jack Tar magazine and Women of Maritime Calendar

Captain Kim is back at it again. But this time she’s using web 2.0 to promote her project.

Kickstarter is an awesome website I’ve written about before. Kim’s is well on her way to raising enough seed funding to produce the 2011 version of her popular Women of Maritime calendar as well as publish a new issue of Jack Tar Magazine. She’s already sold out one of the levels in her Kickstarter program but there’s still room for you.

Just in time for your Christmas shopping! Hop aboard and lend a hand!

Google, Hauls on the Bowline!

I love when technology companies celebrate maritime culture in their marketing initiatives. Remember when Microsoft caught Sea-Fever marketing Vista a few years ago?

Not to be outdone, here’s a new cool new video by Google that promotes the lightning fast speed of their new Chrome browser. Stick with it to the end for their little maritime ditty.

Here’s Bob Neuwirth’s version of Haul on the Bowline from the great Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Song And Chanteys.

Ahoy There!

Here’s an interesting way to market a book. I love it but not so sure about it’s effectiveness and definitely best NOT viewed by those who suffer from epilepsy.

It’s easy. Fill out a profile about your dancing abilities, upload a short video of your talents and then get matched up with one of the other video profiles.

So get high steppin’ on the high seas!
