Internet-famous man who traded one red paperclip for a house is now selling…the house

Internet, Web 2.0

Remember the One Red Paperclip chap? Yes, I know, I had to strain my memory-gland too, it’s rather difficult keeping track of all the internet-famous ce-web-rities isn’t it? American Kyle MacDonald started with a red paperclip which he traded for bigger and better objects, eventually ending with a house in Kipling, Saskatchewan.

Gaining fame and possessions along the way, he has now put the 3bed/2bath house on the market, although is offering to trade it for something better. MacDonald hopes to sell it by July 11th, and claims he’s “looking for nothing in particular, just to make a trade and see where this goes”.

Does anyone else feel slightly uneasy about the questionable morals here?
