Hey, so I had a take on the whole finding and communicating with people around you that are interested in the same thing, in this case bitcoin trading, while maintaining your privacy. Maybe you don't want to publicly identify yourself as a bitcoin buyer or seller. http://bit-list.appspot.com, uses your twitter account to authenticate, but you can even keep that private from others on the site, by setting your nickname. To further protect yourself, once you are done with a conversation, you can delete the whole thing.
I just finished implementing private messaging and thought that was a good time to announce the site here.

There is a mailbox like thing you can create at any point on the map, I call these Drops. Anyone can leave a public message in the Drop. You and the sender are the only ones who can see a private message added to a Drop you created. You can permanently delete/burn your Drop at anytime. In the message of a Drop you create, enter in #hashtags to enable searching out by the hashtag. Bitcoin buyers enter #bitcoin-buyer. Bitcoin sellers enter #bitcoin-seller.

I would appreciate feedback, thanks.

There seems to be a lot of attempt to turn up with private solutions.

Maybe one of them will be succeed and that will be good for bitcoin. I encourage people to try them all out.
We are enthusiastic to see bitcoin be used by more people and see helping people close to each other trade in them as valuable. Avoiding having to send cash or a wiretransfer to someone far away is a good thing.
I know there are sites that identify people on the map who use bitcoin, but they expose the persons' personal information. Who knows if some government decides they don't want their citizens using bitcoin at sometime in the future. Do you really want to give them a way to easily lookup users' name and location?
