For a while now I have wanted to make Thursday’s into a day that I share random things we find around the internet or told about by friends. I was checking my email this morning after our long hot walk I think I need to stop doing that because I never leave the computer because inevitably something or someone needs my attention and has a Pitch for us or an idea they want help with.
So anyway getting back to this morning. A friend from college google chatted me and told me about his really cool new website called www.FourCoconuts.com and asked if I could take a quick look to see what I thought. I think it is a fun idea so I told him I would tell some friends to check out his new brain child.
The story of Four Coconuts:
A supermarket in Jerusalem, IsraelTime:
2 AM on a Thursday night in early 2009
Our hero was carrying out his weekly shopping routine, when he laid eyes on some coconuts.
Instinctively, he wanted to purchase a coconut or two, because the exotic allure mesmerised him. Yet, at the same time, he could not fathom a single use for the coconuts.
Reaching for his trusty Nokia N73, he tweeted out into the ether: What could you do with a coconut?
Suddenly, he received a stream of responses that ranged from the whimsical to the artistic to the downright wrong. The one thing that he knew was, he had to purchase four of them.
And with that, FourCoconuts was born.
