Q3 2009 Update

I have to admit that, instead of coding and doc’ing (documenting) indoors, I have been mostly enjoying the long string of sunny days in Seattle. The slowdown was prompted mostly by having a settled mind on the general course of action for this project. In particular, I am planning the information system around exploratory studies, and the earliest study is not likely to occur before the middle of next year. So while the expectations and excitement remains, the timeline for implementing currency ideas is not nearly as pressing as other project priorities this year.

In the meantime, besides sporadically working on the development of currency system tools, I will spend more time exploring the nuances and likely concerns in a trusteeship-based economy. For starters, I have written about addressing potential issues involving durable goods transactions. These analyses will likely come in handy when confronted with valid concerns and skeptical participants.
