“Let’s Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum!”
A very pertinent, and successful example of a crowd funded project going on right now is the Tesla Museum project being lead by The Oatmeal on Indiegogo. As of today, the project has raised more than 1.1 million, against a target of 850 thousand, with a little more than a month to go.
Obviously I find the success of the subject matter more than a little heartening; not only does the world need another Tesla Museum, but I think the enthusiasm bodes well for the project. Last year the Mark Twain autobiography was a big news story, and this year it’s the Tesla museum. If we don’t hurry up and print this thing, who knows what other details of the plot could become common knowledge.
