Kickstarter’s First Ever Successful Campaign

Today I’m sharing some news about a person who deserves more shout-outs and kudos than most people I know, aka @darkpony. Great work LJ and keep on rockin’ the free world!

L.J. Ruell, who goes by the username darkpony, is credited with having the first successful campaign on Kickstarter. The 43-year-old Queens, N.Y., resident first learned about the site after it was mentioned on a forum by Andy Baio, who at the time served as developer and consultant for the company.
