It’s in the PI!

More from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer today:

How does a tight-on-money musician make plans to treat herself to a luxurious massage, accounting help and a marketing consultant? Seattle piano teacher Josie Davis, who intends to partake of all three, says it’s simple: Book the services without having to pay for them. At least not with dollars. Davis is a member of a growing Seattle community on, a barter currency Web site that launched seven weeks ago. “I can take care of myself and treat myself to things that I don’t have the finances for right now,” said 28-year-old Davis. “If it weren’t for this, I wouldn’t get a haircut right now.”
