The future of bitcoin, the new cyber currency, could be tiny or titanic depending on how it's promoted from here on out. If backers try to make it the universal currency of a new era, bypassing banks and governments, it could end up as "financial Esperanto."
If, however, backers lower their sights and shoot for "financial English," bitcoin could surge as never before.
Why is this comparison important?
According to various estimates, there are between one and two million Esperanto speakers worldwide; and between 335 and 500 million English speakers. Using the high-end estimates for both languages, English clearly dominates by a factor of 250!
If the parallel between languages and currencies is sound, the implications are enormous. No matter how high bitcoin has surged in the past, it could be only a ripple compared to the tsunami ahead! …Continue

Bigger bucks ahead … because money itself is being re-invented! But it’s not really about the money; material wealth may be a secondary motivator.
The new money is 100% internet-based. It flows free and fast like electrons, and it comes with superpowers. Call it money 2.0, internet money, or supermoney. “Up, up and away!”
(Note: The term "supermoney" is used by at least two companies: supermoney.com of Santa Ana, California; and supermoney.eu of Milan, Italy.)
No, the new money isn't…Continue

An unprecedented global "supersociety" may be emerging -- in spite of resource depletion, pollution and conflict that seem to be driving us to dystopia.
This surprisingly positive prospect is the fruition of key developments that are now germinating and sending out their first tentative shoots. They all engage a vastly underutilized resource: the best that is in people.
Among these highly-human developments, seven of the most imminent and notable are these:
These, only now being defined and framed, might be called hyperjobs, meta-jobs, ultra-jobs, post-information-age jobs, or no jobs.Continue

Within a few short years we could see an energy explosion that changes everything. It promises to come years to decades sooner than conventional (hot) nuclear fusion. And it could be a lot cheaper, more scalable, and more transformative.
(But keep it to yourself. Most media people are.)
Back in 2009, CBS News's 60 Minutes boldly announced: "Cold Fusion Is Hot Again." Great news, one would think, because if real, the technology could end carbon pollution, lower the cost of everything, and revitalize whole cultures.
But the news failed to catch fire in the general media. Why? (More on this later.)

A whole new Internet seems to be forming. It's the Internet of Money, which promises to transform everything economic, just as the existing Internet has with communications.
When the Internet of Money is mature, finance, commerce, employment, and society may be streamlined, quickened and humanized in revolutionary ways.
Bitcoin, the controversial cyber currency, may or may not be the basis of it. No matter. The cat is out of the bag. Thanks to Bitcoin's rocket ride, we now know that a global digital currency can work, and that people want it.
Some form of…Continue

Alternatively, water could be brought to where California is, now that the Colorado River isn't enough.
The obvious way is to tap the nearby Pacific -- through desalinization.
Stumbling block: we'd need a really cheap energy source.
Fortunately, there's a California start-up close to commercializing low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology, formerly known as cold fusion. How about pumping a few billion in to this and related efforts? Really cheap compared to the trillions, easily, it would take to dig up the whole state and cart it…Continue
