In order to stand out in a crowd, you need to either beat your chest louder than the rest, innovate, or take off all your clothes and trade them for booze. We all knew this was bound to happen. For a bunch of reasons, mostly to keep this blog accesible to younger readers, I'm glad I took the high road with one red paperclip. But I'm also more than happy to see someone emulate one red paperclip to create something they believe in. Whether you morally agree with it or not, I'm willing to bet that part of every single one of us is intriged by the idea of turning a stack of porn into potentially vast amounts of liquor. The fact that the press has started to line up doesn't surprise me one bit. I truly believe there's nothing better than old-fashioned straighforwardness and the desire to turn something you don't want into something you do want.
one red papercip now has it's Dark Side counterpart.
