Hi there, my name's Paul Fabretti and I am running an internet-based social experiment and I need your help (but there is something in it for you too!!)

The power of the internet as we know it is proven, but the power of what they call Web 2.0 (Google it!) is not. The new internet is all about communities, trust and people-power which is what this blog is ALL about!

Using all the tools that the Web 2.0 provides (blogs, MSN Spaces, Yahoo 360, myspace.com, forums, email and wikis and any others I have forgotten!) I want to see just how far we can swap this small black stapler for! I hope that together, we can find the best and most trustworthy ways we can all trade and communicate in a way and spirit that really makes the most of the new internet.

Who knows where it will take us? But that's the fun of the experiment. Tell your friends, tell your family, tell your teachers, tell their friends, tell strangers and let's see just how popular we can make this.

Don't forget either, that when we draw this to an end on December 23rd 2006 (my son's birthday - what better date?!) I will auction on eBay whatever item I end up with and EVERYONE who I have traded with will get a share!

Simply email me your offers to:

and...get communicating!

Get what you want get rid of what you don't

So, here we go:

The first item to swap:

A wonderfully useful black stapler with about 60 staples in (although they are split in 2 sections)

Now, I don't know what I want to swap it for, and that is the fun!

Make me an offer!

What do you have that you don't want in exchange for this
REALLY useful stapler?

Simply email me with your offers (and a picture where possible) to the email address on the side and I will let you know!

I will update regularly with a list of items that have been offered for swap and depending on the amount of suggestions that get sent in, I will post a decision every week.

Then the fun starts all over again with the item I have just swapped.

Maybe we will even reach a car by the end of the year!

Just like eBay, upon receipt of your item to my address, I will despatch the stapler (and ALL the spare staples I can find!). All arrangements will be done via email.

IMPORTANT: Exchanges and offers for exchange will be done in TOTAL CONFIDENCE and none of your personal details will be revealed during the exchange. You can swap in total confidence that you will remain totally anonymous (unless you want the fame!)
