Excellent! That is what needs to be done, nationally.
An everything exchange system, through the network
providing goods and or income for everyone involved.

I keep thinking I would like to sink my teeth into developing the online 
resources for a national network. Talk about mobile apps! That too 
though I have no interest in accessing the Web through a cellphone;
laptop and mini netbook, yes. It would be challenging enough to 
replicate what you've done with your database of local resources plus a 
local producer/customer network, with food at its core.

Thanks for the input.
