The funniest thing...I seen your posts as they were happening...first: The RED Paper clip...then the next item...then the next.. As it was happening, I HAD no clue it was all done by Kyle MacDonald..It was a def. neat adventure as it was going along. I was clueless as to what was happening...until I read in the news what came about. Even stopped by and seen the final result! and what had happened in the community- A KEY!! and a RED Paper clip!! The whole thing was/ is a Pretty Cool story!!....hmm...and THEN I see it today on TED- that's cool!!
