Clare from #ExtinctionRebellion just ended her #MeaningConf talk *brilliantly*, by asking the audience to talk to each other for a moment about what we do next, and then leaving the stage without us noticing. No applause, no closure. The question and demand is still open. We’re fucked. Do something. Now. 👏🏻

@Floppy. Strong reason to consider networks of markets performing complex integration across the enormous diversity of signals passing across them. The problem isn't markets, but the means of exchange they use. Fiat currency is a desperately bad design. #MutualCredit http://crookedtimber.org/2012/05/30/in-soviet-union-optimization-problem-solves-you/
