Venture One Red Paperclip

Venture One Red Paperclip

Meet the one-red-paperclip guy, Kyle MacDonald, a 26-year-old ex-geography student with a crazy scheme. In the summer of 2005, Kyle announced to the world he was going to trade a red paperclip for a house — with just his blog as a bartering tool. In one short year, this stunt took him from unemployment to international media darling, along the way attracting a popular radio deejay, a rock star, a movie producer and eventually a Saskatchewan municipal developer willing to talk real estate. Is Kyle the ultimate slacker or an internet marketing genius? Follow his roller-coaster ride and decide for yourself.
