Did any of the Seattle Seven ever do any math about what it would take to crowd fund €500 large?
The Stern book had 444 backers. So that would be €1126 per backer average needed to replicate.
PAPA TV had 724 backers. So in this case that would only need €690 from each of them.
Now, in the PAPA case, the average amount of money was $81.23
And for the Stern book the average amount of money was $124.58
So almost a ten times average for each, needed.
Now, of course the Seattle Seven might have thought they'd get waaaaay more support than either the Stern book or PAPA did. Because this is going to get so much more support than either of those projects..... ummmm, yeah.
So.... 2000 random pinball people step up to save this. In that case you'd only need €250 from each of 2000 people. Piece of cake.
