Jonorose made a great suggestion the other day: He proposed we open a "Ricochet Marketplace" where members can sell things to each other.
I'll run that idea up the flagpole with the bosses and see what salutes, but in the meantime, I'm probably the only one awake and sober enough to take the initiative. So I hereby formally open the 2012 Ricochet Free Market. Let's all celebrate the New Year the Ricochet way--by selling things people want at prices they want to pay.
If you build, create, improve or innovate, this thread's for you. Tell us about it! What do you do, how much does it cost, why is it great, and where should we go to buy it? (And if you don't, what are you doing on Ricochet? Shouldn't you be on Daily Kos or something, waiting for a government handout?)
Don't be shy! I reckon we all want to start 2012 with private enterprise, entrepreneurialism, and economic growth.
Don't have anything to sell quite yet? I'll bet you have an idea. Tell us about it and we'll all have a think about the best way to turn it into a product that improves other peoples' lives and puts money in your pocket.
And the way:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #52,364 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
That, believe it or not, is my doctoral dissertation.
