    Thanks for including me… Very nice to get the 1st carnival off the ground…

  2. RateLadder says:

    No post from LazyMan?

  3. Lazy Man says:

    I believe that the host should leave themselves out of the carnival – at least that’s the way that I’ve seen other carnivals handled in the past.

  4. RateLadder says:

    Makes sense… Any other rules I need to know?

  5. Lazy Man says:

    Sure, but most of them are currently unwritten.

  6. Tom says:

    Nice collection of articles. Thanks for putting this together.

  7. Thanks for including my article. This is a great way to get different perspectives on peer to peer lending out there. Looking forward to future editions.

  8. Thanks for putting up the carnival! Do you know how far along prosper is in making it possible to sell loans? If they became liquid it would be a whole other ball game.

  9. Tom says:

    Early Retirement Extreme,

    In late October Prosper registered with the SEC to create a $500 million secondary market. That’s the last I’ve heard.

  10. Lazy Man says:

    Like Tom, I just know that they filed the thing with the SEC. I’m not sure we’ll hear about it again until it’s officially available.

    I wouldn’t expect to be able to sell off your bad loans for much though.

    This is interesting stuff, Lazy Man. I will be funding my Prosper account this weekend and writing about it. I think there is a lot of potential here, and I am excited to get started. I’ll be visiting your site a lot to read about your experiences!

  12. RateLadde says:

    For those interested… Here is everything public about the S1 SEC filing…

    Congrats on kicking off the first edition of the carnival!

  14. Strange, but I thought I had posted on this earlier… Anyway, what I thought I said (but maybe I was just talking to myself ;) )was 1) thank you for organizing this carnival and 2) thank you for calling my post your favorite.
