Three Weeks Ago, on July 7th, 2014:

…from my perspective, this happened on the internet: (What is this?)

Potato Salad Kickstarter

While it had been going for a few days already at this point, a Kickstarter by Zack Danger Brown was started to get some serious internet attention.  The point of the Kickstarter was simple: he wants to make some potato salad.

I didn’t make note of what the amount was at this current day, but from what I remember, it was in the thousands of dollars.  At the time of writing this, three weeks later, with 13 days to go, the kickstarter is currently at $61,162.
