A little while ago Jeanne over on AppBlogger wrote an article about Kickstarter failures. This led to her being contacted by Professor Ethan Mollick who explained what she had gotten wrong. So Jeanne and Ethan struck out together to take a more statistical look at Kickstarter numbers.

And for those who don’t have time to read, there is even a handy info graphic.
