Alex Andon just sent me the link to his new venture ChatBasket linking up developing country artisans with US consumers via an online chat room. It's a cool idea - maybe we can increase the value of trade if western consumers value and will pay for that personal connection and narrative behind a product (see also http://significantobjects.com, in which consumers paid around $45 for a $1.50 object that comes with a totally made-up background story). You can support the crowdfunding campaign and/or buy a handmade Guatemalan iPad case here.

I also got an email about ChatBasket and I had the opposite response. Something about it just felt wrong to me. Maybe I am just overly suspicious of new things?

I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as
with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
