Kickstarter hits 100,000 projects
These days everyone is promoting a Kickstarter, from a guy crowdfunding potato salad to a movie star funding his next multimillion-dollar movie. Recently, Kickstarter celebrated hitting 100,000 successfully funded projects by listing 100 fun facts about the milestone. Strangest of all is the fact that 86,101 people launched those 100,000 projects — meaning there's a lot of double dipping going on. Or, at least, a lot of people who found success raising money for, er, potato salad and came back to ask funders for more.
