Working on a newer version where it's kubi per kulo, so you actually get a bit more cubo-sculptural freedom . Will explain more soon. P.S. But, your idea of a system to trade up a paperclip into a car via social media "status" seems like something for a Klout hackathon.

Your idea reminded me of an idea I had that would probably be ruined by logistical issues. I'd like to see a service that let you specify what you want, and what you can offer, and essentially find the cheapest way you can "trade up" to your goal. You always hear about some guy who traded up starting from a paperclip and eventually getting a car. What if you could harness the power of the [insert social media buzzword phrase here] to make this process easier? I could offer... I dunno, web site development in exchange for something I value much higher once it's propagated through the social graph. Just an idea. First of all, you’re wonderfully insane–that’s a compliment.
