If you haven't heard of Prosper.com until now, a $1,000 contest and a new web site might get you interested.

Prosper.com is a peer-to-peer lending site. The idea is that if you're having trouble getting a loan at a bank, or maybe you're feeling a bit anti-bank these days and would rather see someone else profit off your money, you might want to seek out a loan with Prosper.com.

Or conversely, if you'd like to invest a bit of your money and see where your funds are going, you may want to check out this site. You can borrow or lend, from the public, instead of the banks.
