Fascinating read on Mike Merrill, a person who is publicly-traded -- that's right, you can go ahead and buy yourself some stock. I guess it all makes sense, if each person is technically a self-named corporation.

Merrill, an office manager, entrepreneur, and sometime artist, has been his own personal stock market since early-2008. On his website, KmikeyM.com, people can buy shares and then advise him on questions about his personal and professional life, fund his ideas, and have a say in which kind of restructuring he undertakes.

Essentially, each shareholder has decided to buy into Merrill's life and help him make better choices that will then hopefully up the stock price, allowing them to make money should they ever decide to cash out.
