Have you noticed that our medium of exchange, money, is becoming more varied, fluid and dynamic?
We're seeing cyber currency, new variations on barter, and the proliferation of "free." A new incarnation of "money" may be emerging. It might be called SuperMoney, the medium of exchange of a synergistic, frictionless society. It will be central to advanced forms of everything economic: money management, jobs and entrepreneurship, business, investment and savings, and the economy.
We may be moving toward a time when money as we know it disappears completely, replaced by a spectrum of ultra-efficient, eminently fair, and globally synergistic free-exchange mechanisms and practices. The open-source software movement is one sterling example.
For now, we've still got to have traditional money, but many of us are gradually shifting to alternative means of getting and supplying life's needs.
