Will Work For Work August 3, 2007 4:53 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a post--either on the front page or in Ask MetaFilter--about a website that offered work-for-trade, or work-for-services, or some such. I remember the site could be used, for example, by a bricklayer and a painter, where the painter needed a new patio and the bricklayer needed his house painted--sort of an eBay for trade skills. I can't remember if it was an FPP, or a link posted as part of a comment, or an answer to an AskMetaFilter question. Anyone?

I'm sorry I couldn't find the post, but I did find this about bartering services

If I find it for you, what are you going to do for me in return?

Is this it?

Search term was "time dollars".

I'll do interior painting in exchange for coffee, beer and/or neck massages.
