I'm back from my moving-time hiatus to bring you a special announcement. (And Lawrence, Kan., is a great town -- thanks to those who've e-mailed.)
I've spent the last few months working on a side project in my dwindling free time. Today, I'm happy to announce it has launched.
Trodo.com is kind of an online bartering site. Basically, you register for a free account and list items you're willing to trade -- CDs, DVDs, books, video games, video tapes or vinyl records. When somebody requests an item from you, you pay for the shipping, send it, and get a credit in that category. Then you can use your credits to request items from other people -- for free.
When you register, you get three free credits. After that, you get a credit for each item you ship successfully. (The credit is awarded after the "buyer" gives you feedback.)
John Rhodes of WebWord had the idea; I was the humble programmer. We both kind of played around with the design (which is incredibly plain at the moment).
Check out the site and let me or John know what you think, or how it can be improved.
