Another celebrity who's taken the Kickstarter route. This time is legendary rock musician Neal Young.

He's behind a new device for listening to music. It's called "Pono" which is Hawaiian for righteous. As in a righteous listening experience.

Take a look at this campaign! It's 35 days long and just 3 days into it...

They're at $2,605,575 pledged of an $800,000 goal with 8,019 backers !!!

This campaign could wind up breaking the all time record for crowdfunded projects! We'll know within the next 32 days.

Yet another incredible example of the power of this new way of doing business for creative people!

Here's the link to the PonoMusic site and a video for reference. The line of musicians endorsing and associating themselves with this is astounding...

Just few hours into its 4th day and the Pono campaign is kicking Kickstarter ass!

So far... $3,241,905 pledged of an $800,000 goal with 31 days to go on a 35 day campaign with 9,703
backers!

That's about $635,000 more than this time yesterday. This will be one of the biggest campaigns in the young history of crwodfunding, might even become the all time champ. With so many celebrity rock pop jazz country folk musicians lining up it could very well happen.

We shall see! 8-)

Here's the latest update on the hottest project on Kickstarter.

About 6 1/2 days into the 35 day campaign...

12,038 backers have pledged $4,040,483 of an $800,000 goal. There's still 28 days left to go.

Right now the Pono campaign is at number 4 on the all time Kickstarter list of highest funded projects. Good chance this could set a new all time record. Still plenty of momentum left in this and they're expanding their rewards to meet demand...
