this sounds like a good idea as part of a community or outside of a community...a way of bartering skills and time. i wonder if this would include resources also.

For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to spend on having someone do something for you. It's that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. Time Banks change neighborhoods and whole communities. Time Banking is a social change movement in 22 countries and six continents.

if it disappears again, i give up
i meant by resources, a place to live, use of tools, equipment in exchange for skills/time.
this time bank thing sounds like a good idea. does anyone have a group in their area or have any experience with them?
this seemed such a great idea when i posted about this 2 years ago...it seems like even a better idea today.
