Give me stories, access.”  “As a fashion editor my job is to find new talent. But don’t have them tweet at me. Find another way to connect.”  “Set expectations. For ecommerce people want their product right away. But if it’s set up as a Kickstarter kind of project, people are willing to wait; it’s a different mindset.”• Initial feedback on MVP: need call to action and an element of play and feedback to keep users coming back (Polyvore)• Competitors (Cut on Your Bias, Fabricly, Lookk) already use voting, pre-orders – how do we differentiate and acquire customers?
