We all know about Kickstarter, but there's another crowdfunding kid on the block - Indiegogo. Indiegogo, along with Matthew "The Oatmeal" Inman, launched an Indiegogo campaign that aimed at buying some land for a Nikola Tesla dedicated museum.

Inman raised $850,000 within a week, which was his funding target, and within less than a day to go, $1.35 million has been raised. Danae Ringelmann, Indiegogo's co-founder, has said that the "Operation Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum" is the largest campaign in Indiegogo's history.

Just how much money is thrown around on these crowdfunding sites? Well, Kickstarter has said that its users have pledged an amazing $350 million since April 28, 2009 - which is around $2 million per week on average. I'm looking forward to seeing the Tesla Museum built, and would eventually like to go and check it out once it has been completed.
