The other day, we featured some primo hipster nonsense about a group of San Diego twentysomthings who want to build forts to save the world in a project called Forts & The Inbetween. The idea was to travel around the country and build blanket forts with people to foster community, art, fun etc. I loved building forts as a kid, but this seemed a little too clever by half, and many suspected it was a joke.
Well, sadly, it now appears that the project has been canceled. The group’s Kickstarter page (a website which helps small organizations raise money online) now displays a message saying, “Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator 1 day ago.” The epic nine minute video explaining the group’s mission has also been taken down, though the website remains alive for now.
