Quite fascinating.

There obviously isn't a lot of content in there at the moment but it is food for thought - we spend a lot of time glorifying failure but not enough time quantifying it and learning from it. While learning from success is more useful, if we had a fuller picture of what causes businesses to fail as well as succeed, it might help us do some legitimate inference work rather than the anecdotal guesswork that happens these days.
