Kickstarter is for a bunch of nerds willing to pay to be part of a group.

Once again, elite backers carried the campaign forward.

Yeah, just like most of the taxes will be paid by the richest.  So we should leave them alone.

Since the article is sourced The Atlantic I'm going with DRTFA, stupid ass hatttery on display, more empty space filler for a dying rag and some Lower East side hipster's idea of cool when in fact it's anything but ..

I tried to watch Super Troopers a few hours ago. They took it off Netflix streaming *sniffle*.

That actually doesn't go in depth at all. In depth would be exploring motivations of donation for each tier, and their financial status.

But I forget, it's only the Atlantic.

That is what I was thinking. I was hoping for an analysis of the driving force and what specifics made it a success, the data split up into categories isn't in depth at all.

At least now we know how to count to potato salad.

"If we break down this amount by level of funding, the majority of supporters are contributing very little to the campaign. Some 69 percent of all backers pledged between $1 and $4-yet small donors only make up 15 percent of the total campaign funds. In other words, most of the money is coming from a small group of donors. The group that gave the largest share donated between $35 and $49, contributing roughly 40 percent to the total. Yet this tier of funders, who will receive a T-shirt and a bite of potato salad, make up less than 10 percent of the 6,154 backers. That means a set of 555 hardcore potato salad enthusiasts had the biggest financial impact on the campaign. "

Just wait until this guy hears about taxes and elections. The fur is going to fly.

It would also help if they had interviewed the guy who started the kickstarter.

Ya'know, real journalism. Will he keep the money? Did he actually make any potato salad? Will he donate any of the money or potato salad to charity?

Hard hitting questions like those.
