Thanks for all the info, Barterer.  Don't feel bad about only 6 people signing up so far.  "The journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step"... or... something.[/Butthead mode]   By the way, when I first posted in this thread, I conflated your handle with your avatar and called you "Bartermonkey" repeatedly; you may need to change your name.  ;)

So the guy who wrote the software is still actively working on it?  I took a look at the Google discussion list and wasn't overwhelmed by the number of threads.  Maybe this concept needs an evangelical blabbermouth...   :icon_pirat:

Food, movie rentals, cafe mochas, clothing, gas... pretty standard stuff

I currently use Vonage, and would certainly consider transferring my business to help out a fellow Porcupine.  Vonage is flaky; I've been told that people have called me when I know I was home, yet my phone never actually rang.  I'm not too concerned with the security aspect; I try to speak clearly and enunciate to make it easier for the poor Feds who are forced to listen to my incredibly boring conversations.  It's the least I can do.  :)

Call me a month before your Vonage contract is up. :)

I never heard of the Ripple system before, but it sounds like it has fantastic potential for the Free State! 

The idea came out of the "Swiss Economic Trading Circles" during the depression when credit was tight. Today the modern equivalent in Switzerland is called the "WIR Coop Bank" and trades about 1.8 billion Swiss francs annually. It is a paperless, credit clearing/bookkeeping system kept on a secure network that employs a debit cards at the point of purchase.

That's really interesting; thanks for the link.  I think this sort of thing would be more valuable if businesses started participating as well, which looks like what they're doing in Sweden.  Even if every Freestater I know signed up, the truth is, most of them don't have the stuff I want to buy.  hmmmm...

The fastest growing food sector is farmers markets because people want to encourage local farmers and they want a personal relationship with them.

I tried to register, but got an error.  We were talking about using your system for Shire Hours.
