New research on containers

"The humble shipping container is a powerful antidote to economic pessimism and fears of slowing innovation. Although only a simple metal box, it has transformed global trade. In fact, new research suggests that the container has been more of a driver of globalisation than all trade agreements in the past 50 years taken together."

totally clear to me. that's why etoy works with the box as an integral element of its corporate culture since 1998. not just as a metaphor - but as corporate building block (actual functionality: shipping etoy art around the globe, hosting/housing studios and etoy.AGENTS, storing etoy.ART-COLLECTION etc...)
