Next time you throw a party, make your guests pay

Zokos.com com, an interactive party planning website, went live recently, and is on a mission to change the way people party. The concept is similar to Kickstarter, but with Zokos, your potential party guests are the ones who contribute to your project's ultimate goal: throwing a badass party. Reach your contribution goal, and it is SO on like Donkey Kong. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Here's how it works:

Create an event on Zokos.com.

Then, set a goal for your party - a minimum (or maximum) number of guests.

Next, invite all your lil' homies via e-mail. You can import contacts from your e-mail account, or add them individually. If you choose to connect with Facebook, you can include all those crazy cats as well.

Finally, set your menu and your chip-in price per person. (Guests contribute through PayPal)

According to their website, "If you reach your goal by noon the day before your event, the party is on! Your PayPal account will be credited. No one is charged until the goal is reached, so if there isn't as much interest as you wanted, you're not on the hook to throw the party."

Might there be a party revolution in the works?
