Ever thought that you'd never get anywhere by asking strangers to fund your invention? Kickstarter is proving you wrong, now that the site has raised over 1 billion dollars for personal projects.

Of course, for every crowdfunding success like the OUYA and Pebble, there's also the misfires, like the Ubuntu Edge and, you know, OUYA. But let's not take the shine off Kickstarter's special day, okay?
