This is what I need, a site like taskrabbit that takes bitcoin, and can be used in my city.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Or use TaskRabbit, if they were to simply to start taking bitcoin for payment.

They don't even accept Dwolla yet, so Bitcoin is probably even further out.  You can get on Dwolla's notification list though to learn when that happens, if it eventually does.  When that happens then there would be at least a not all that complicated path:  BTC  -->  USD  (at an exchange) --> Dwolla  -->  TaskRabbit.

One way someone who is unbanked or doesn't want to use their own credit card can use TaskRabbit is to buy a TaskRabbit gift e-code.  Someone on the #bitcoin-otc marketplace would be willing to make the purchase and enter your e-mail address as the recipient.

Another service that at one point was kind of similar to TaskRabbit (though I'm not sure how similar they are still), is Zaarly.  And though they don't take Bitcoin yet, they will likely be accepting Dwolla:

Quote
Zaarly's a marketplace. Dwolla does payments. So, one audience member asked towards the end of the session, can we ever expect to see the two startups work together?

[Zaarly CEO] Fishback said there's a high probability. "We've been talking about it for awhile," he said. "There's some cool magic to be done between Zaarly and Dwolla ... I have no doubt about that."

"I'd bet an enormous amount of money," he continued, "that sometime in the next year there will be some cool stuff going on there."

At some point Bitcoin becomes just one more tiny icon next to the others ....
We accept: VISA / MasterCard / Dwolla / Bitcoin
