Web Comic Raises $1 Million+ to Build Tesla Museum

With 34 days to go in his publicly funded campaign to, "build a goddamn Tesla Museum," Web cartoonist Matthew Inman — creator of The Oatmeal — has blown past his initial goal of raising $850,000 by a fairly substantial amount.

As of this article's writing, Inman — and more than 26,000 backers behind the project — have raised a total of just over $1.1 million. Since New York State has offered a matching grant to the campaign recipient and non-profit Tesla Science Center if it manages to raise $850,000, the project should be able to hit $2 million in total funding if not surpass it entirely.
