Trading Up

Who says that blogging can't pay off?

Kyle MacDonald is the one red paper clip guy who has been blogging for a year and trading things. He started with a red paper clip, traded that for a pen, and that for a doorknob and so on. And now he has essentially traded one red paperclip for a house.

He started July 2005 and 14 trades later, he made a trade with the town of Kipling in Saskatchewan, Canada for a house. A house for a paper clip - now that is trading up. Isn't technology wonderful?
