Shameless Chest Beating!

Just a quick post to let you know that the article I wrote for has just been published. I have declared today a public holiday at Castle Sidewalker (and as soon as I get home from work I'm going to enjoy it!). I've instructed Mrs. Sidewalker to man the phones in my absence as I anticipate an uptick in the volume of calls we receive, especially from agents and publishers; I'm sure a "book deal" must be in my immediate future...

So without further ado, here is the link:

The Penny is Dead, Long Live the Penny by Luke Sidewalker

I hope to post the Sidewalker Mailbag later today.

UPDATE: The Mailbag post has been postponed until Monday as I'm trying not to burn the Castle down with an impromptu BBQ right now.

Have a great weekend...

Dear Mr Sidewalker,
I was introduced to your blog yesterday by a colleague of mine who happens to be a friend of yours (don't worry your identity is safe with me!). As a fellow change liberator I was instant fan and your blog stirred fond memories from my student days when i used to scan the dance floor and the foot of the union bar before closing time with the usual outcome of a tidy profit.
Today, a day on from my introduction to your blog and with your legend still fresh in my mind I found 10p (£0.1 GBP) partly obscured by sand on the pavement by Instow Beach (North Devon, England). Still on a high from my discovery the competitive side of me got to thinking if there was any chance I could make a million dollars / or at least get closer to the million than you using your own Sidewalker method.
Despite your head start I figured with the exchange rate in my favour, I could probably chip away at your lead. Then it dawned on me that it was probably a bit more complex than that and that I'd need to consider transatlantic currency denominations and the distribution of people and small change in our respective stomping grounds before I challenged you.
Then I had something of a Eureka moment which brings me to my proposition.. I’d like you to take the Sidewalker method public and accept my 10p (found on a North Devon pavement) as an investment in the Sidewalker fund. At today’s exchange rate (0.166) my 10p would take your current total of $16.19 up to $16.35. For my investment I’d be looking for 1% stake in the fund which would entitle me to 1% of future earnings and all Ad revenue generated by the blog. In return I promise to pay into the fund all my future sidewalk / pavement findings. I’m hoping my 1% will grow to be 1% of something bigger and that as we keep topping up the fund the level at which other people can invest (limited to pavement findings) will diminish.
So what do you think?
Yours sincerely
PS you can see where I found the 10p if you click my name which is linked to a google map - keep it real

Thanks all for the congratulations.

I'm flattered that I have inspired you to pick up. Thank you for your generous offer of the well structured revenue share proposal. However I'm not in a position to agree to a deal at this moment in time due to the excessive currency risk inherent in a deal such as this. With both of our Governments printing money "Monopoly" style there is a very real possibility that one of us could get financially crippled in a hyper-inflationary death spiral. And I'm of the opinion that there should be no losers in the noble art of sidewalking.

Stay in touch and happy sidewalking,

-Luke Sidewalker

Oh and one other thing Jetd. I pinpointed your find on the Sidewalker Cash Trail Map, just in case global financial stability is achieved and we can strike a deal in the future.
