Kickstarter is basically a pyramid scheme. It’s just a novel and amusing way to tap into the goodwill of your friends and families, but soon enough, most of them will be sick of receiving your request for money. Those who tapped into the scheme earlier will benefit from it disproportionately. By the time they need to return the favor, everyone would be sick of it, and it would become socially acceptable to ignore any requests. If you haven’t created any Kickstarter projects yet, I think this year and next would be your last chance. So, hurry.
