auroracoin ow.ly/totL0 cryptocurrency to be distributed to all icelanders on 25/3/15


This means that the Icelandic economy is slowly bleeding. The people of Iceland are being sacrificed at the altar of a flawed financial system, controlled by an elite that made astronomical bets supported by the government on behalf of the people and ultimately at the expense of the people.
By printing more of the currency that people are forced to use in their daily transactions, the government is directly attacking the welfare of the very people the politicians claim to be fighting for; the poor. The poor are not in a position to protect themselves, by investing in assets that rise in value (measured in the fiat currency). Their income rises eventually, but the new money is printed into the hands of the select few who have the greatest access to the financial system, not the poor. The only thing they can do is watch their paychecks shrink and their purchasing power decrease with every trillion dollar that is being printed into the hands of the elite.
In essence, the government prints itself out of debt. In Iceland, this was not entirely possible, since the debt was nominated in foreign currency and no external bailout took place.
This one-time event will create the conditions for Icelanders to start using the currency, by providing them with a start and making them aware of the currency and its possibilities

This one-time event will create the conditions for Icelanders to start using the currency, by providing them with a start and making them aware of the currency and its possibilities
The Airdrop will start to take place on March 25th 2014. A national ID database, created by the government will be used for this purpose. Although the thorough registration of the entire Icelandic nation into one database is unfortunate, it creates opportunities to reach a large part of the public through various means. About 330,000 Icelanders will be made able to claim f31.8 each over the following year.
Developers are encouraged to create tools for Auroracoin to support the adoption of Auroracoin. Such software, e.g. for payments, will help Icelanders start using the currency in their daily lives.

@sandymaxey it's emergent. Our evolving society. Our evolving construct. That is why you (we) play at the edge, yes?

In schls we're not great at iterating "stage 1, 2" when we're on to stg 5, 9, etc. Maybe we need cycles shorter than wk, yr. etc #ak12dc

.@boadams1 Must shift from "low frequency/high amplitude" to "high frequency/low amplitude" culture at schools. #ak12dc

@GrantLichtman @boadams1 Interesting. Can you elaborate? re: frequency/amplitude?

@djakes @GrantLichtman response 2: soaker hose vs. fire hose. One floods; one saturates in a “drinkable,” “refreshing” way.


@djakes @GrantLichtman freq = regularity! number of meet-ups. Amplitude = size of effort. Like a mammoth conference 1x yr = low f! high a!

best case scenario = 24/7 which moves us out of schools.. no?

But it’s not really about that. It’s not even about squeezing extra code out of employees. It’s about fulfilling some platonic vision of how work should be: a tight-knit group of friends, pushing themselves to greatness.
