Summer 2014 :)
This summer I:
Watched falling stars, had picnics at the ocean, went for bike rides, hiked in national forests and state parks, kayaked/swam/jumped off cliffs, camped on river banks, enjoyed hot tubs, wandered through prairie grass, swam in a lake, went to plays in the park, walked the dipsea trail, napped in a hammock, and ate breakfast/lunch/dinner in a treehouse I helped build, and in general sucked the marrow from the bone of life. I read Momo and The Book of Life, along with poetry and some science journals. I hereby declare it a highly successful summer.

google wants to give me a custom url. Cool. But not one that matches my gmail account? Nope - they won't let me put the M in the middle. Why?

Fabulous piece by +Guillaume Lebleu  http://lebleu.org/blog/2013/10/05/the-future-of-money-is-less-money/ "In other words, the future of money is less money and more not so random acts of kindness. In other words, we can deflate in monetary terms, but inflate in terms of social currency."
"In conclusion credit money is just reputation turned into commodity through the use of legitimate force. There is a limit to it though and just as we have experienced a resurgence in commodities as store of value, we may see a resurgence of peer credit as medium of exchange."
Hello Human Wealth.
The future of money is less money. Posted on October 5th, 2013. This is a piece I originally posted 2 years ago as a comment on emergentbydesign.com. The money we use is Government money or levered Government money (bank credit). Government money is backed by legitimate force.

A tangential point I believe is that money or as I very much like better stated above any 'store of reputation', or simply value, is no more than a means to an end. It is a mechanism for storing value. The focus needs shifted to what that value is being applied or directed towards. Or simply the goal. Objective.

Often times an objective can be achieved without the need for an intermediary step (like money). If your objective is to develop greater connection with others, then simply investing time and working on quality of interaction (often not even needing money) will move one towards that goal.

When money - and its ilk - are an end to themselves is when incoherent and antithetical issues arise. Personal as well as collectively. IMHO.

Indeed the future is less money, which I internalize to mean the future is a better focus on what matters and not so exclusively on the means to the end (work/labor/money/things)

The future of money is a crucial part of the thrivable world I hope we are all building toward. I think an important part of that effort is making it visible to the public. Heather Vescent is doing that, if her kickstarter makes it. But we have to mandate it socially, by backing the project. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heathervescent/future-of-money-tv-series.
If you are running a company working in this context, let me encourage you to be a producer of this series, it is a very inexpensive way to get 1.5 years worth of visibility for your organization. 
If you are active in this field, help others be more aware of it by making this little project fly. 
If we all chip in a little, it means a lot. Together we can do it.

If you ask me, Heather Vescent is the one person most clearly aware of the trends in currency across a broad spectrum without a bias because of her annual surveys and research on the subject. Please encourage her to keep making the field of work visible.
Exploring the positive forces in the evolution of money to help us prepare for and take advantage of change.
