I really appreciate what Kyle's done, it was ingenius and fresh, but isn't that what's really the key value: that it's cool and new. I mean, what a great idea, that you can "trade" you're way up from something worthless to something worthwhile taps a core social premise (everything has value if you know what to do with it).

Reminds me a lot of the The Million Dollar home page. Only works once -- as long as you don't count 1000 tags.

The lesson for PR is always the same: be remarkable.

I read the Entrepreneur article on this guy. I figure if some guy can make it to the cover of Entrepreneur selling worm poop in recycled plastic containers, I should start my own business. In fact, I turned from pigeon-holed corporate monkey to young flailing entrepreneur. The company I'm starting is called I'm starting it because I was disappointed with the existing invention submission services - many are scams and will take thousands of dollars from you before thinking twice. So I'm creating a user-friendly trustworthy online community to post, share, request, and compete for invention ideas, business ideas, patents, etc. I'm writing all about my experience on my personal blog Check it out, I'm always available for comments or suggestions.
