WHAT IS OUR CAMPAIGN ALL ABOUT?

It’s simple.  We’re asking hundreds of our soon-to-be-new-best-friends to back our effort to raise enough funds to send a production crew to Peru in June or July, based on when we can get all the permits, reservations and ticketing taken care of, and go to Machu Picchu, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, and document the site for the Interactive Book for the iPad that we’re building.

WHAT IS AN INTERACTIVE BOOK FOR THE IPAD?

Just think of a paperback and throw that thought away.

Think of an e-Pub document for the Nook or Kindle and then think of the old Mac commercials where PC is explaining to Mac about his summer vacation with an Excel spreadsheet.

Then think of holding an iPad in your hands and being able to wander around visually with 3-D animations, graphics, embedded videos of scholars and scientists explaining about what used to happen at Machu Picchu, and think of clicking on a button and being able to see a 360° rendering of the site.

The choice is clear, hi-res and in HD and on the new iPad with the incredible retina advancements, well, it’s going to be the next best thing to actually being there.

WHO FOUND MACHU PICCHU?  WAS IT REALLY HIRAM BINGHAM?

Well, he did climb the mountainous area one day in 1911 and “re-discover” it.  There are accounts of others having been there and maybe even some graffiti on a couple of the walls when he got there.  But it is clear that exactly 100 years ago right now, Hiram Bingham was out raising funds, just like we are doing, to go back so he could gather enough information to properly share with the world about Machu Picchu.

We’ll share more facts about the project and Machu Picchu each of the remaining 32 days of our campaign.

In the meantime, we ask that you please support our efforts and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  This can be one of the greatest creative learning projects ever put together and you have a front-row seat and chance to be a part of it, let alone to have your name in the book if you give $25 or more toward our goal!
