If you’ve never heard of lala.com, here’s the quick run-down: a bunch of really smart people, with lots of seed money, have set up a system whereby you can trade CDs with other people for a dollar or so. It’s basically an intermediary for CD trading.
To simplify further, to trade CDs that you have, here’s what you do:
- You have an original CD that you are willing to part with.
- You list it on their system. This is pretty easy to do, and their search function employs the latest trendy AJAX technology, so various search results appear as you type.
- If another lala member wants your CD, you get a message tellling you that somebody wants your CD.
