I wrote about BookMooch a few months ago and I just recently discovered a similar service for DVDs, CDs and Games. The service is called SwitchPlanet and it’s pretty cool. You sign up and tell SwitchPlanet the movies, music & games you are interested in. When other members send you that stuff on your wish list, they get SwitchBucks. They can then spend their SwitchBucks by requesting stuff from other folks.

Who would have thought the barter system could become so efficient in the internet age? Pretty neat, huh?

I’ve been covering the commercial barter industry for the last 27 years and you can trade for most every kind of product/service today, through trade exchanges, online and offline. There are 800 of these exchanges worldwide and some 400,000 companies are bartering through them, receiving a “trade dollar” when a sale is made, and then spending these “trade dollars” when buying from another company/business within the network.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
