I'm mostly just saving this for later because the composition tool was fun.

Join us at 1pm Eastern for the next session of the Great Currency Debate about reputation currencies, sustainability, and triple bottom line economics. :)
The Great Currency Debate is a series of Google Hangouts by The Citizens Media® (the-cm.com), where we are building a system that unites solutions for speeding up the transition to the new economy.

Hangout on how we can use reputation in building a means to exchange currencies, products and services, that integrate true, tangible value to help people and the planet to thrive.

To learn more, watch the trailer, or check out the blog on CM http://bit.ly/1FbGGRt

Hope you can join us!

It's great to hear Jaime Lerner talk about his creative approach to problem solving with complementary currencies.
'There are many illusions about money. One is that banks create money when it's printed. But money is actually produced through bank debt, when banks loan money to individuals, to governments or to corporations.'

Tomorrow (April 2nd) we will be demonstrating a bunch of the tools we've developed on an MIT webinar call, but today (April 1st) we unveil them first to you, our friends. Also, we need to practice showing and talking about these things, so we're hoping you'll cut us some slack if there's glitches in the demo process.

So if you've been wondering when you'll get to see some of the stuff we've been building (Eric and I around MetaCurrency work), here's your chance. Warning: Do NOT expect a full-blown currency system, Ceptr is the underlying tools that make those kinds of things possible in ways currently impossible. DO expect to see:  semantic trees, fractal receptors, semtrex as a general semantic pattern matching system, a preview of our distributed network technology, followed by Q&A and discussion.

Emerging Leader Labs Applications OPEN for Summer Session 2014! 
"Part education (except you don't pay tuition), part job (except you work for yourself), and part social enterprise incubator (except our focus is on "social impact" first and "enterprise" later), the Labs are designed to nourish our wild spirits and the crazy projects that just might make the difference we need [in the world.]" 
http://emergingleaderlabs.org/ 

The program is taking applications for two 2014 sessions. One in August/September in Chatham, NY and one in October/November in Asheville, NC.  
Apply here: http://emergingleaderlabs.org/Apply_to_Participate 

I participated in the ELL summer session last year (2013).  It was a wonderful experience. I was introduced to many enlightening and inspirational ideas/people. I would expect this session to be just as valuable.... The program serves as an abundant learning resource for everyone involved, facilitators and participants alike. 

The program's focus areas are:
Leadership: Learn to collaborate and work as a team as well as empower teams to fulfill projects and produce outrageous results. 
Projects: Develop implementable projects that produce a positive impact on the local environment or community. 
Service: Invest some time and energy in service projects in the local community that is supporting us.  
Coaching: Throughout the program, each participant will have a coach to support them in their personal and project development. 
 
Some complimentary resources for all those interested:
- A really great video that showcases ELL, which was created during the inaugural program, the "Seed Project" (Summer 2012):
