Great post guys!

For crowdfunding, check out www.Sponsume.com

Their test platform has been up and running in the UK since August.

I've heard they would launch a new and improved site, opened to Euro funding by Jan.

Also Sponsume do not currently charge.

Aw, Chris, what a monster! Breaking children's dreams and whatnot. Are you gonna tell them next that Santa isn't real ?

The most depressing part will be when our revolutionary youth turn 30-ish and accept jobs at banks as "Innovation managers"...

"I am so happy to have this wonderful opportunity to change things from within!", the last blog post will say.

Speaking of middle-class-initiated revolutions...




great blog post. And I think you got it. I wasn´t at Sibos but I red Venessa Miemis Blog post and followed the discussion. Yesterday I wrote a post in my www.finance20.de Blog, and have tried to understand what Venessa and her Generation really expect from banks. And what I understand is: They don´t expect anything from banks. They expect a world with new political, economical and cultural rules. Maybe a world without banks and without companies and institutions, which endager the future of the world and especially the future of her generation.
I remember the words of Bill Gates. Was it Bill Gates? We don´t need banks, we need banking. Maybe we needn´t banking anymore

Maybe it's typical for being attributed with a birth date in the midst of Generation X, "the forgotten generation", but it's still highly annoying to loose a page-long comment on why newer systems will envelope banking not just replace it.. and how the economy is moving towards a kaleidoscopic system more or less resembling anarcho syndicalism. Alas, sic transit gloria mundi.

So.. where can i get seed capital to finance a prototype for an infrastructure for "commerce 2.0" ?

Take care
