Thanks to the Aspen Institute’s Youtube channel, a conversation between the Aspen Institute’s CEO Walter Isaacson and Kickstarter’s CEO and founder Perry Chen can be seen, which shows how Chen kickstarted Kickstarter, the historical influences that led to Kickstarter, why Kickstarter is important for the arts, and why it’s okay for everyone–included celebrities and industry giants–to use the crowdfunding service.

The video can be viewed below (and starts roughly six minutes in). If you have time to watch the entire interview and Q & A, let us know how you feel about Kickstarter in the comments below.
