What is XOXO?
XOXO is a company founded by our friends Andy Baio and Andy McMillan. It is the premier festival for independent artists and creators who work on the internet.
XOXO launched in 2012, through a Kickstarter project, and it has since grown into a thousands-strong community filled with people creating new things.
What is happening to Drip?
We are partnering with XOXO on a new project that will ultimately replace Drip, a project in which Kickstarter will be taking more of a supporting role, with the team at XOXO building on the work of the Drip team.
What does this mean for Drip as it is now?
Drip will remain operational in its current state for the next year. We’re committed to supporting creators and subscribers on Drip while the new platform is developed, and we will continue to provide support to our Drip community during this time. This will include escalating and troubleshooting bugs and answering questions about how to use the Drip platform in its current state.
You can sign up to XOXO’s mailing list here to receive future updates about the new platform.
What does this mean for Drip in the future?
When it comes time, we’ll help creators export their content and securely transfer subscription and payments information from Drip to the new platform. And if a creator wants to leave Drip sooner than that, we’ll be on hand to help them move to another platform.
While we do not have a launch date for the new platform yet, XOXO plans to keep users in the loop as things progress.
