Creative uses of E-Bay


This latest post from Nick Carr:  Rough Type: Nicholas Carr’s Blog: Monetize me

American student Ron Steen, is offering 2% of his total earnings throughout his lifetime for $100K.

You never know – they might make more money from this than actually writing the article.

(*) I’m joking – but then things I’ve suggested in jest before have been taken seriously by others….
