Have any of you been following Kyle MacDonald and his one red paperclip adventure? If not, here’s the quick rundown: July 12, 2005 he posted a picture of one red paperclip on his website and offered to trade it for anything. His goal was to keep trading upwardly until he got a house. One year, 14 trades and many tv and radio appearances later, he has done it. Check it out, y’all. The power of the internets + original idea.
Meanwhile, we’re moving into our new house (the day after Kyle moves into his) on July 13. We didn’t have any paperclips to spare, so we just traded a lot of money for ours.
