The only people who'll get bit by Kickstarter are the ones who don't do enough due dilligence on the projects they're backing;
I hate when people say this about Kickstarter. I am a banker by profession who reviews credit quality for potential project finance loans. Due diligence requires a project to show budgets, timelines, balance sheets and a ledger balancing sources & uses of cash. No Kickstarter that I have seen has shown anything like this. If you think concept art is enough due diligence to know if a project is going to succeed, then you have never run a business. "Due diligence" on Kickstarter is a joke.
