So far the internet’s reaction to the failure of Paul Mahwinney to sell his "world’s largest record collection" has been along the lines of: "See, no one cares about analog media anymore."
Me, I don’t see it that way. First of all, his beginning asking price was $50 million. Are you kidding me? Even at the now "reasonable" asking price of $3 million, he’s not getting any takers. You know why? Because for $3 million you can build an amazingly awesome record collection that you won’t need a warehouse for and doesn’t contain a whole lot of crap. [Nah Right]
