Google Docs folder for shared time banking resources - we can also upload these files to CoActivate. The advantage of using CoActivate to manage our growing collection is that each timebank group can upload, and update, their own files. For example, in Dunedin we have recently updated our brochure. Using CoActivate, one of the Dunedin TimeBank team can easily take down the old brochure, and upload our new one. This is a more sustainable approach over the long-term than having one or two people in the de facto role of 'national resource administrator'. Many hands make light work! :-)
