Kickstarter now available in Australia and New Zealand, projects launch on November 13th


Kickstarter's world conquest continues: following a Canadian launch in the summer, the crowdfunding service is now available in Australia and New Zealand. Creators in both countries can start building their projects today, and launch as soon as November 13th. Locals can accept pledges from anywhere on the planet, although their backers will have to pay through the Kickstarter website rather than Amazon Payments. If you're eager to learn the ropes, the company is hosting its first workshops for the region between October 27th and November 5th. There's no word of expansion to other countries, but it's clear that Kickstarter's international rollout is gathering steam.
