UPDATE: It was an amazing discussion. My only regret is that I failed to manage the recording aspect correction, in that the video stays on my face instead of going to whomever is talking. My apologies; rookie mistake.
There are lots of other people doing lots of other things to move us toward the new story, and the Gift Economy is just one part. Restore your hope by recognizing that this is a global movement toward alternate and sharing-based economies, and it is already underway. Establishing community ties with people who share the same goals as you is essential.
This will be our first live-panel discussion, and we will be covering things like Free Stores, TimeBanks, Co-Working, Transition Movement, and more. Scroll down to watch live on Friday, June 13th, at 0930 (GMT -4:00 / US Eastern Time), and leave a comment or question for the panelists. If you prefer, you can also join the event via Google+ and receive event reminders.
