I've just read about this site www.ushare.co.uk in a letters page in the Cash section of the Observer (takes me a while to read the paper).
The idea is the site facilitates people to share various items rather than buying them - you get points for loaning out and use points to borrow.
Am quite excited about it, especially in these cash crunch days. Also sounds like a fun way to get to know people and build a community 'n all that good stuff. Am thinking of setting up a SE1 group - what do people think?
(I haven't done it yet as the search function seems a bit wonky so not entirely sure someone hasn't already done it!)
I haven't bothered to post up anything we own yet. However, we do in fact have a drill so if you'd like to contact me off-list (private message? I haven't actually done that before) please feel free and we can probably work something out.
