The Real Reason Quirky Failed
Ben Einstein

When you engage a community at this scale, how often can you say no? That is, what would have happened if Quirky said yes 2x or even 10x less often? The portfolio performance would probably have been much better and allowed more time for iteration. However, I suspect the community engagement would have dropped way off as people became impatient with the very high bar to get something made and participate in the upside.
