Kickstarter hires a journo to investigate a failed campaign

multiICTPRESS - When you hear the word "Kickstarter," you probably think of campaigns asking for your money

ICTPRESS Report: This time, though, the crowdfunding website is using its own money to fund a project: one that aims to discover why Zano mini-drone, the most-funded campaign in Europe, failed to deliver
The company has hired an investigative journalist named Mark Harris, who has written for various publications such as MIT Technology Review and Scientific American, to look into what went wrong with project
 If you recall, Zano's CEO suddenly resigned in November, leaving backers out in the cold. Prior to that, the campaign promised a tiny, cheap drone that can be used for aerial photography, and people liked it so much, it raised over $3 million
According to Harris, the company asked him to track the project from start to finish and to find out where the $3 million worth of pledges went to. Also
Kickstarter has asked me to... answer the questions of whether Zano's creators could have done anything differently, or made mistakes that future Kickstarter projects might avoid. I will also be looking into Kickstarter's role in the project, and whether it could have served Zano's creators or backers better throughout
