    Thanks for the mention!

    I'll have an update in a few weeks after I keep going after this issue.

    Quick Comment

    First, thanks for the mention.

    But I wanted to clarify things:

    While I agree that we already have a digital currency in the idea that it's mostly transferred/handled digitally, it's only by an ad hoc system and still subject to the whims of corporations as well as currency exchange rates.

    Which is why I bring up both ideas together: if the world were to trade on a single currency, there would be no transactional issues - and if the digitization of our currency came along afterward, completely replacing paper notes, it would be by design.

    The difference here is that when the currency is planned/mandated to be digital, it becomes subject to the same oversight and regulation that paper notes have in America today.

    But if current trends continue, the digital currency will be in the hands of banks, financiers, and other greedy interests that have already proven themselves unable to handle such a burden without bias or self-interest.

    I called him out on this too, but for a different reason. Ignoring the fact that he's selling the "solution" for the moment, is what he describes as the problem even the problem?

    The answer is "no!":

    Thanks for the writeup!

    I just wanted to point out that I never signed anything, as an Undergrad at SJSU, that would waive my rights of ownership to the school. There may be a hidden clause in some legal document that we're required to read and agree to implicitly, but not as far as I'm aware.

    "appreciate their government watching out for them"?


    And I bet that's along the same lines of all the hand-picked smiling seatfillers at the Olympics, or the party-line PR-sneezing government officials who would only say obscure things like "the Chinese people are proud to host the Olympics" when asked about something like Tibet.

    Real Options

    For this position, we need *real* people. Not the sort of self-satisfied Web 2.0 idiots that Scoble and others are such a big fan of. Who am I talking about? Find out. --Kyle
