Kim,

The idea of a tool library (and what avid reader doesn't love something with the word "library" in it?!) is part of a larger interest of mine in all kinds of collaborative "consumption": giving/lending/bartering of time, space, skills, possessions, and experiences. There is a lot currently being written about how peer-to-peer web-based tools are making this easier and safer than ever. Just put "collaborative consumption" in any Internet browser to see what's going on: airbnb, TaskRabbit, and Zaarly, in addition to eBay, Craigslist, etc, etc!

I would love to have a discussion with interested others in whether we see a need and a tool that might lend itself to our connecting within our FSP community in such ways. Anyone else?
