'Vacations with stars'

'Vacations with Stars' is a concept that for now I have seen only in Polish info space. It is about tourist agencies offering holidays with some polish 'stars'. Of course the stars get the vacations for free or even are being paid for having a good time.

It seems like exploiting popularity is more and more simple - is it really a harbinger of the 'attention economy'?

The one red paper clip project suceeded

One red paperclip traded in a chain of barter transactions into a house (via Ming the Mechanic: Paper Clip to House)

What does this mean?

Perhaps it has got no meaningfull meaning at all - but maybe, I say maybe, just like The other project it shows a trend?
