Mission accomplished: The Oatmeal raises $875,000 to build a museum honoring Nikola Tesla

After successfully booting an IP troll in the financial groin a couple of months ago, Matthew Inman (better known to the Internet as The Oatmeal) has done it again. This time Inman was aiming to raise $850,000 in order to save a project that would build a museum to honor Nikola Tesla, the scientist whom Inman fancies quite heavily. As of today, it’s mission accomplished.

The state of New York promised to match Inman’s raise, putting the total for the project at $1.7 million as of the time of this writing. Inman states, via the Indiegogo campaign, that the funds won’t be enough to complete the project but that it will “effectively put the property into the right hands so it can eventually be renovated into something fitting for one of the greatest inventors of our time.”
