Om Malik sat down with Perry Chen for a really great and in-depth interview about the success of Kickstarter.
I think, we’re able to offer people the ability to overcome that one core roadblock — the funding — and then additionally allow people to build this community and nurture an audience around a project.
I think the great part about the Kickstarter story is that the success of Kickstarter has meant success for more than just the company. It has meant success for every single successfully funded project (well over 20,000 now). It has meant that all of those people associated with those projects have been able to do something that they really wanted to do.
