Hamilton alumnus John Freyer '95 has embarked on a project to sell all of his possessions. Freyer sold his catalogued possessions on eBay, then kept track of what had ended up where (including his Hamilton senior thesis, <i>Information Technologies and their Role in Surveillance Societies</i>, for $20.50). He has used eBay as a "free publishing system" to display web projects to a broader audience. Since, he has began a road trip to visit his former possessions and most recently has even sold his website which displays the work, www.allmylifeforsale.com, to the University of Iowa Museum of Art.
