LobsterNetwork is a new web application that helps you share your stuff safely and securely. The hope of the creators is that it will help to create community amongst friends and strangers. Besides making it easy to lend and borrow things to/from other people, you can also use it to log and track your own stuff for purely personal use. The creators of LobsterNetwork just love sharing their stuff with others, but they found that it was really difficult to track it all and it was also difficult to encourage their friends to come and borrow stuff. Now by using LobsterNetwork their friends can browse their stuff from the comfort of their home and request to borrow whatever they have made available. Then the next time they see each other, they exchange their stuff! Finally, after the allocated time, LobsterNetwork reminds both of them that it’s time to bring the stuff back.
LobsterNetwork stands for:
Share it. Lend it. Borrow it. Trade it. Sell it. Give it away. LobsterNetwork is simple, easy, fast, flexible, controlled, helpful, secure and best of all it’s FREE!
You can share DVDs, books, video games, audio, tools or anything else you are willing to lend to a friend, family member or acquaintance. A few videos (more to come) have been made to explain how the system works and how to use it. We suggest watching these videos before you start entering data.
LobsterNetwork is a great way to share your stuff, but there are so many other potential uses for this website. You can use it to manage a club or church library. You can use it as an offsite item information storage for insurance purposes. Or you can use it to get to know your friends and neighbors better! In particular, we think there is enormous potential for communities (clubs, churches, associations…) to share their stuff with one another. LobsterNetwork can be use for all sorts of purposes!

It will take some effort to get a local group going, but the results will be worth it.
We love this! It’s exactly what our local homeschool group needed to keep track of the stuff we share with each other!
this is a great concept… can’t wait to get everyone in my local co-op online with it!!
A really great idea. Now I just need to find time to get all my books logged!
So much potential. So many uses.
