I have been working on the idea of a IT expoert type website.

'experts' would bid on IT jobs for home/small businesses

yes there are other sites like this, but nothing focused on the home/small business market, where they dont want to throw about heaps of money

the expert would bid on the 'project' submitted by the home user, the home user would select the 'expert' based on reviews etc etc and the work would be completed ( after payment etc )

anyone think this would float?

It could... There are a couple of freelance project sites around though, but I am not sure they have broken into the market and are certainly not mainstream.

That’s what I was thinking, there is nothing specifically for home users.  personally I think most home users would be frighten off at the likes of freelancer.co.nz etc. Those sites are more focused at geek to geek resource!

If anyone is keen to help with this project with either developer input or finance that would be fantastic.

I have a very basic site that has been developed that could be a basic start point.
