The Future of Money

Tuesday 8 May 2012

Have just spent a few hours discussing the Future of Money, hosted by James Bibby at Microsoft in Sydney and facilitated by Peter Vander Auwera from SWIFT/Innotribe. I'd like to flag that everyone understood that the session was way too short for such a big topic and everyone would agree that we just scratched the surface (not that the scratch would leave too much of a mark just yet). The session was a kick start for a group from a wide variety of interests: banks, payment providers' IT specialists and some specialty consultancies.

The framing of the day enabled us to get a handle on the way Innnotribe run their innovation events/interventions and the group was given some opportunities to discuss some ideas about money, where digitial currencies may be headed and to have some idea starters (provocations) tossed into our thinking space.  All in all a most enjoyable way to chat about what could become a very dry topic.  I was the first of the provocationists with the overall brief not to pose solutions but to toss some ideas at the group they might not have considered.  Value Systems came into play again.  I've made a couple of small adjustments to this PowerPoint to ease things for those not in the room, and the last slide includes some of the notes I took from the day.  Marcus Barber's Future of Money presentation

New Australian Food Labeling Laws Finally Make it to Market
Wednesday 3 May 2017
Some of you may have noticed Federal Government advertising for the Food Labeling Laws. What few people will know is that the model being put out there is pretty much the EXACT model I proposed back in the year 2000. Which just goes to show that to predict the future, sometimes all you have to do is wait. Well not quite but

No, all is NOT Lost!
Monday 27 February 2017
It's been a significantly busy couple of months looking at how Industries and Government Agencies are preparing for change. The Companies versus Climate Change conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in November/December, and a meeting with the Political Science Department at the University of Hawaii (Manoa) in January show that positive action is happening, despite some of the headlines
