Imagine if you could take the models of ebay, craigslist, wishood…
And you would end up with an application that looks like swap@home, or uexchange.com but on a much bigger, more localized scale.
Bartering and swapping away stuff you don’t want for stuff you DO want.
Imagine if you could integrate it into Facebook, so you could have the added *feel good feeling* of swapping with folks you know. Now imagine that it would be reciprocal - right now, swap@home and uexchange don’t really draw a relationship between what you’ve got and what you need, they stand as independent activities.
What if the application could draw the 7 degrees of separation between you and *Joe*, the person who’s got what you need, *Jane*,the person who’s got what Joe needs, and *John*, the person who wants what you’ve got.
Now think about the goodness that this could do to the environment.
Now think about the goodness that this could do to your wallet.
