thingdango is progressing. i was putting in some of my own items and its rather usable. photos can be assigned to an item via a straight URL or from your flickr album. seth suggested adding what you'd be willing to accept in trade for item X. the EBAY API is too expensive to use at this point. I need permission from craigslist about posting automatically. I wrote craigslist but no response. I need to find a better address to use for them.
