When I was browsing the web on this question, I found this article and decided to share it with you. I know that this is not the point and the question is more of a fun question rather than a logic question. But it is an interesting article nevertheless.
Here it is. Enjoy!
Just the crux of the article for the impatient:
But I still think we should sell snow to an eskimo in a way that is really useful to the eskimo, like I said in my previous post :-) Innovation can be the key differentiator.
- Don’t sell snow.
- If you don’t have anything that the Eskimo needs, head back home.
- Next time you go to Alaska, don’t forget to bring a generator, Twinkies, portable DVD player, chocolate, Gameboys and plenty of batteries. You will have a much easier time selling those things than snow!
Nice to know that you are spreading the popularity of the blogs of others too! :-)
