Summary:

With Kickstarter-backed projects like Pebble making a splash at last week’s CES, we thought it was a good time to revisit our conversation with Kickstarter CEO Perry Chen on the role of crowdfunding and creativity.

How is crowdfunding changing the nature of creativity. In today’s podcast we revisit a fireside chat Kickstarter CEO Perry Chen had with Om Malik at our RoadMap Conference in November. In it Chen describes the origins of his popular service and how he wants to keep Kickstarter small and around for generations.

    Very cool Chris, thanks.
    I’ve recently come across some really interesting research that addresses some of these same issues in a really parsimonious theory. And I think that you or some of the other readers here may be very interested in it.

    It’s called the “Theory of Crowd Capital” and you can download it here: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2193115

    Personally, i’d love to see a story about the work relating to industry.
    Enjoy!
