The first was held in 1942, when a priest named Kristian Skjerring decided to shine a spotlight on the (otherwise invisible) underclass of men and boys who broke their ...

"The war on cash is escalating. As Mises’ Jo Salerno reports, the latest combatant to join the fray is JP Morgan Chase, the largest bank in the U.S., which recently enacted a policy restricting the use of cash in selected markets; bans cash payments for credit cards, mortgages, and auto loans; and disallows the storage of 'any cash or coins' in safe deposit boxes..."

A group of experts likens the food industry's PR “machinery” to big tobacco’s. Ouch.

“The idea of transcending the limitations of our physical existences through digitizing consciousness or making ourselves into robot bodies is a really bad idea,' he says, with the conviction of someone who’s thought about the idea for a long time. 'It might be helpful for exploring space and the cosmos and whatnot, but it seems very unlikely to help anyone with the difficulties and horrible crises engendered by capitalism, which are much worse than the idea that any human individual will eventually die.”

Some of the suggestions out there are utterly bizarre/desperate.

Could negative interest rates create an existential crisis for money itself?

"...visionary activist Enric Duran, who in 2008 borrowed $500,000 from banks, and then he gave the money away to various activist projects..."
The Catalan Integral Cooperative is surely one of the more audacious commons-based innovations to have emerged in the past five years.

Popcorn Time is giving away Hollywood’s most valuable content for free, and making that piracy easier than ever.

It's too bad none of them accept #bitcoin. I had to donate to the See Change Foundation instead, who do.

"Although Mr. Kerry praised the just-ended, two-year Canadian stewardship of the council, it was evident that the Obama administration will shift priorities from economic development to environmental protection...

...Environmentalists hailed the handover, hopeful that President Obama’s focus on climate change and Mr. Kerry’s longstanding commitment to environmental issues will better protect the Arctic than Canada’s business-first agenda..."

Thank god for that.

Introduction

I am currently CTO for crowdfunding startup dana.io as well as the VP of Sponsorship for VeloFemmes Canada CCC

I am a co-founder of Free Geek Vancouver and have sat on several non-profit, progressive boards including the Vancouver Community NetBC Council for International Cooperation, Society Promoting Environmental Conservation, and the Artists' Legal Outreach Society

My technical expertise includes implementation of commodity and re-purposed hardware, open standards and free software - Ubuntu for servers & workstations, Android for tablets and mobile - as well as the Bitcoin e-payment protocol and social media strategy and web service development using the Drupal web community framework.

I have an abiding interest in martial arts, am an avid meditator in the Theravada Buddhist mindfulness tradition, and help maintain webservices for the D.I.Y. Dharma community and Birken Forest Monastery.

Philosophically I find the intregral vision as outlined by Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilber, et al. the most compelling worldview. I am part of the team that developed metaintegral.org.
