has a great little story about how a guy turned a paperclip into a van
. He traded a paperclip for a pen, a doorknob for the pen and so on and so on and now he has a van. He used his blog
to do this and eventually hopes to get a house on an island or something. I have crap I can get rid of, and I have time on my hands...
I would ideally like to pool the collective resources of Mathew and Jeff to make things go a little quicker, but I can't speak for them right now...For the time being, I'm going to offer to the world a copy of this picture that sits next to my
desk. It's of a cowboy riding a horse atop a casino in Vegas. It's pretty famous, and I took it with my own fair hand. I will happily come to trade this picture with anyone who makes an offer, ideally in the Putney, London, UK region, but I am flexible.
Post your offers in comments, if this works out, I'm hoping to have a real horse. I promise to let people ride it and/or feed it a sugar lump.
