I like this idea. Here's a couple more:

Have a webpage index of members listing their skills, resumes and
services offered. This could be like the restricted list, readable by
the public, but only members can be on it. If this would take too many
resources, then perhaps just a single page index of members with a link
to members' private web pages.

ExI should also sell advertising space on its web page. Listings of
Extropian services, either of interest to Extropians, or offerred by
Extropians, would be of interest to visiters to that page. This
hopefully would be a good form of advertising, and thus should earn good
revenues for ExI.

Maybe the extended advertising would be a pay service, available to
nonmembers as well, while the individual web pages or links would be a
member service.

The Mutual Fund idea gave me these ideas. I would like to see an
Extropian financial advisor available. And why not and Extropian
doctor, lawyer, writer, web-designer, philosopher, artist, etc?
