Now through the magic of 3d printing you can hold in your hand.
But IRL is more than just a cool tchotchke. I have a vision. I want to be awarded to users who post some truly exceptional content - audio, visual, poetical, whatever-ical.
So I created @yourdailybread.
@yourdailybread will connect users to each other. This account will only follow weekly bread winners - that way others can see who has been recognized and so we'll also know who is in the running for a :bready: award.
What's a :bready: ?
It's an award I made up to recognize good content on .
Money raised through the purchase of will go towards 52 bread awards - one for each week, and the :bready's: at the end of the year. Three of the top weekly breads as chosen by the committee (which I haven't figured out who it will be composed or if it will just be a giant vote) will get bronze, silver, and gold bread. (steel finishes)
Hopefully this will be self sustaining. I'm more than willing to entertain any thoughts or suggestions.
I would like to have this start the first week in 2015. This should give us on time to figure out whether this is viable and logistically possible.

FYI: If there's any extra I'm gonna be up front and say that I'm gonna pocket it for the time I spend doing this stuff. I probably won't get rich. But I want to be as transparent as possible.FYI: If there's any extra after the 52+3 awards I'm gonna be up front and say that I'm going to call it remuneration for the time I spend working on this endeavor.
