Go Fly a Kite

Although it's still in the research phase, Saul Griffith's company Makani Power is developing a way to generate electricity from kites.

Mobile Transactions

I believe that cell phone transactions are likely to make the greatest impact in transforming the future of money.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
