Certain things are silly from one perspective, yet have a lot of meaning from another.
....like getting Philip Zimmerman to sign your key.
or like getting CmdrTaco to Friend you.
I don't mean absolute sillyness like having Bill Gates install your printer, as there's just no point. Or having Linus sign your install disc, would also be useless, as the only value would be sentimental or monetary. However, having Zimmerman sign your key give gives off a perceived value, yet Philip himself wondered aloud why people care. He's correct, but people give him value anyway. Perhaps, since signing is for security (and geek factor) having the father sign the key is the most added value. Having CmdrTaco friend you isn't too special, especially because he is wont to cuss, yet being who he is, it would be a have added value. The value being that sometimes we take pleasure is being friended, so being friended by the founder, must add to that feeling.
I was wondering what other things would make this "actually silly, but perceived value" list. I hope to add more in comments later as i think of them. But that's not as important. What is important is, what do you think?
