They did it! Tesla Museum funds raised!

Last week I mentioned that I'd chipped a bit in to the appeal for funds to build a museum to Nikola Tesla. Well, they've got the money! The goal was reached in less than a week, and the team has got more funds beside. Over a million US dollars, in fact, donated by people in over 100 countries, according to their updates. (See how the appeal is going at Indiegogo.)

I do think it's really important to support heritage schemes and indie projects. It's not enough simply to give people the bare essentials (although that is critically important). We all need a history, somewhere to come from, and dreams, somewhere to go to.

So hurrah for the future Tesla museum! Perhaps one day I'll be able to visit it.
