Initial Public Offering: Cara Ellison

No, not Cara Ellison Corporation, which has been public for nine years. But the person. Me. Would you pay $10 for a share of Cara Ellison? How about $50? That means you would own a piece of anything I produced – a book, a movie, even my income.

The shareholder meetings would be rather riotous, I think.

The question reminded me of my periodic Enron positions, which encapsulates the idea perfectly. When I say I am long on Jeff Skilling I mean it: I want to be a part of whatever he does in the future. Ditto Rex Shelby, Joe Hirko, etc. etc.

So I wonder if it is possible to offer yourself up as a commodity, an investment vehicle, a bona fide product. What’s to stop it?

Jeff Skilling was able to create markets for anything. Surely there is a market for people themselves.

  1. I think that David Bowie did something like this in the late 80’s or early 90’s.

    Isn’t that kind of what you agent does?

  3. This is all just part of your zombie sex cabal. You’re trying to turn us all into zombs clamoring for a piece of you.

    I won’t do it! I won’t have it! No.


    Okay. Fine. Give me the boobs.

    I’m not sure what she was talking about, or even understand her post.

    but I agree with Tracey.

  5. It’s an inside joke between Cara and me. Sorry to be obscure. ;-)
