This was a super interesting read, Kyle. I sympathize with the numerous challenges that have come your way, from the pandemic, to fatigue from social users resulting in dropping engagement, to challenges with the existing tools in the WM ecosystem. We've heard similar stories from other grantees, so you're not alone! As you said, most virtual events are simply no match for live gatherings, especially when it comes to music. That being said, you might like to check out a few folks really pushing the boundaries with virtual events: Andy Baio (of XOXO fame) received GftW funding for Skittesh, a web-monetized virtual event space. And GftW founding collaborator Mozilla is about to kick off MozFest, which will be demo-ing some cool new tech.
