Here’s a bit of the story:
Dubost, a web product manager, built a webpage that is a near-perfect ringer for an Amazon.com product page, with himself as the product. You can check out his dimensions (186 centimeters), select language (he’s trilingual), add him to your cart (which brings up a contact form), or even purchase related products like an airline ticket and some Asics (he’s a runner, it seems). And, of course, you can read his customer reviews. They average five stars, of course, but there are a surprising number of one-star ratings--"lots of ex-girlfriends," Dubost explained via Twitter.
The page has gone viral, pushing the limits of Dubost’s server capacity, and he had to fix his contact form after the number of submissions exceeded the cap for his free account with online form-builder Wufoo.
Does anyone know more about this than I do? (My knowledge is basically limited to what’s in that article.) And is anyone interested in helping? If so, I can get a page up pretty quickly.
