I think buying it was just a way to cause more speculation and feed his ego. Insecure pettiness is the heart of the matter here!

You forgot the option for "whatever, I don't give a crap what he does..."

Insecure pettiness? Feed his ego?

Come on, seriously ... we know he's a crappy leader & CEO and reads inane children's books; but I really couldn't care less about psychoanalyzing why he bought something.

Who cares.
I only wish he would've had to pay more.

I like psychoanalyzing why the CEO of Etsy bought a widget on eBay that is degradating to Etsy ...

Swimmy is not an inane children's book. Leo Lionni was an amazingly talented artist and storyteller and the story has a sweetly profound moral.

What's inane is that an adult (presumably) would use that story as the basis for anything remotely related to business, and that he would do so in such a proudly public manner should embarrass anyone over the age of six.

Oh well, all I can think is how nice it must be to have millions...to waste on typewriters, bikes, guitars, quilts, trips around the world and whatever else my little attention span desires at the moment...Oh well, back to work now.

LOL Impetus, nope I sure wouldn't nor bikes, guitars, typewriters, slogan t-shirts, crocheted chapstick covers, plastic owl earrings, fake mustaches, cupcakes or shittay prints....maybe I'm just not hip enough AND poor. Awesome!

"LOL Impetus, nope I sure wouldn't"

But you think everyone here is jealous that they can't? Explain yourself without the jazz hands.

Rather than wasting time wondering about $40 bead purchases and overpriced bikes, we should be wondering how much money Rob Kalin is dumping into The Parachute Project and the talentless artists (oft seen on Etsy's homepage and splattered in every Storque article) he financially supports there and its obvious yet secret relation to Etsy Corp.

impetuous said...

also also where have you been?
OK. I'll start wondering about that right away...
