Interesting story about what happened when a Canadian slacker guy decided to try to trade a paperclip with “bigger and better” things until eventually he got a house.

The trades were interesting, but so was the media frenzy, starting with word-of-mouth and the blogosphere and ending up with international news coverage.

There were little paragraphs at the end of each section and I couldn’t decide if they were tongue in cheek or not. Also a bit of philosophizing which wasn’t so attractive as the basic story. But I enjoyed this quick read.

Matthew’s going to read this next then we will send it on to the next person in Skinglists’s stalled bookring.
