What can we learn from the Internet?

Internet pioneer Danny Hills has a TED talk about the early days of the Internet. On that talk we see that the Internet, on its early days, was essentially an obscure network based on trust.

Do Angels carry cash?

What do you think the value of the sun is? In terms of energy output, converted to dollars per BTU, what is the sun worth? On any given day, how much do you pay for the sun’s warmth and light?

The Global Gift Economy Is Here

Many people are afraid we will get some kind of totalitarian dictatorial system with RBE. The fear is understandable when you look at living examples of communism like North Korea, Cuba, China and the former Soviet Union. Some might even think that today’s rampant capitalism is better, but then they are forgetting all the corruption, pollution, poverty, war and crime it […]

The Venus Project and The Zeitgeist Movement splitting up

The Venus Project and The Zeitgeist Movement is ‘splitting up’. Personally, I think this is a good thing.

Money Makes Me Miserable

In my life, and in most people’s life, money has been a motivator of some sorts. Whether you are employed, self employed, a business owner, an investor, or unemployed, money is there in the mix. The question is, does the money element make us happy? Well, yes and no. Money makes us happy when we get it, and unhappy when […]

You Never Really Own Anything

Ownership. Property. This is mine. This is yours. Do you think you own anything? You don’t. Ownership is an illusion. So is property. Why? Because all the things you use are only used by you temporarily before they are passed on or thrown away. Be it food, clothing, cars, property, furniture, cell phones, air, water.
