A day in sunny Knoxville

Well, more like 2 or 3 hours in sunny Knoxville. I’m headed up there for a meeting, but I have to go through Charlotte, NC, to get there. So, I’ll be spending about 12 hours traveling to and fro, and about 3 hours meeting.

In the meantime, here’s another reason why I love the internets… one red paperclip

This guy put a red paperclip on his blog and traded it for a pen. Then, he traded the pen for a doorknob. The doorknob was traded for a coleman stove, which was traded for a generator. After that, the trades went from a beer keg party to a snowmobile and a trip to Yahk, Canada. He’s currently up to a cube van and is hoping to eventually get a house. Put this together with the kid who sold a million pixels on his web page for $1 each, and I feel sure that there are enough get-rich-quick schemes in the universe that I will accidentally fall into one someday.
