Update: A commenter complained that he couldn't make a contribution without sharing personal information. Wrong! I kicked in $3 via PayPal. You do have to give 'em an e-mail address, but it doesn't have to be the same as your PayPal addy. It can be a freebie dropbox, or even a fake. (dev.null is your friend.) That's all it takes.
Claire Wolfe linked to a report of The Oatmeal's efforts to raise funds to buy the Wardenclyffe site and convert Tesla's old lab building into a museum for the father of the AC motor -- and AC power.
He's raised plenty, but your $3 or more wouldn't hurt any. The site has been in danger of being bulldozed ever since Peerless Photo Products moved out in the 1980s. We can help save it! Tom Edison may've lit up your life, but it took Tesla to figure out how to get the juice that runs the bulb from where it was cheap to where you could use it.
...Now, if we can just convince 'em to rebuild the old tower and the huge Tesla coil-like gadget that was going to feed it....
