Just when you think you have exhausted all the oddly strange things people have cooked up in a blog, comes along just one more. One Red Paper Clip is documenting the North American (?) Dream:
My name is Kyle MacDonald. I started with one red paperclip on July 12th, 2005 and I am making a series of trades for bigger or better things until I get a house. My current item up for trade is one recording contract. You can read current offers here. Do you want a recording contract? Please contact me with your offer at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (514-833-3980). I live in Montreal Canada but will go anywhere in the world for the right offer. – (click on pictures below for stories about each trade.)
Only on the web can you get away with this. I love the strangeness of it, as well as the only way I found it was tracing back a Technorati link to History Mike’s Musings (who purloined an image link to something buried on this site) and seeing Kyle’s clip as his leading story.
A toast to sweet web serendipity and the dumb luck of clicking out of curiosity.
