The phrase "mo money, mo problems" gets thrown around a lot, but what man hasn't longed for simpler times after watching his endangered albino tiger crash its jet ski into the Maybach? Ending cash's reign of terror with sweet Net-based socialism: SwapRight.
From the tech-tastic steppes of Boulder, SR's a fresh & free service for trading any variety of services sans cash, a process concisely summed up as I'll-scratch-your-back-if-you-scratch-mine-and-mow-my-lawn-cause-your-back-is-way-bigger-man. The process is simple: post up the general service you're looking for (literally anything, from website design to deck staining), what you're able to offer in return, and your general location; anyone interested in arranging some quid pro quo will hit you up via SR to delve into the deets and arrange the exchange/clear up any erotically charged but misleading typos regarding your training in "public landscaping". Recent proposals range from a dude in need of a suspension lift for his flatbed and willing to help with hardwood flooring installation, to someone seeking tax help in exchange for virtual assistance services, to an offer of swimming lessons to whomever helps user Mohtashim S. learn how to drive, which'll come in handy when you remind him you're still waiting for that swimming lesson.
If the trade doesn't seem equitable, SR encourages users to "get creative" or, barring that, offset things with cash, which might lead to more problems, but honestly you can probably pay someone to take care of those for you.
