Hi, I'm a newbie, but I created this "classifieds" website, http://listbyloc.com, for buying and selling locally with bitcoins

I originally had the idea back before Craigslist had maps. Maps + Craigslist = great idea, right? Exactly. And while I was creating Listbyloc, Craigslist decided that they'd integrate maps into their site. Bummer. I stopped developing Listbyloc and forgot about it.

Then I found out about Bitcoins and it occurred to me that the community could really benefit from this type of website. So over the past week or so, I've been getting the site up to beta. There's still a lot more to go, but I thought I'd preview it to the Bitcoin community on this forum.

So take a look and tell me what you think.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Not bad.

I can think a few minor design tweaks, but it really doesn't impact the flow as it is. So never-mind.
Other suggestion would be to call up the users geolocation so the map is focused on their state to start with. (I don't remember if you can do it with the api or not. So you know..  Undecided ...whatever)

If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.
