… offering short selling and paying Bitcoin depositors a bit of interest.

Are there any? Thoughts?

You can short with Bitcoinica, right?  Why not do that with no interest paid?

I believe so, but I’d like to deposit Bitcoins for that purpose over a longer term. Do they lend from their own reserves? Otherwise they must be fractional reserve.

It works on margin, not fractional reserve. So you have to deposit something, and then you get 5:1 leverage off that position.
