Some cool things transpired in: M.o.D. Contributions have been steady and I have been producing responses, all will be sent out shortly (soon as I get them documented and posted). One notable contribution, from Robert Joy, has inspired me to produce M.o.D. coins and these will be sent out to all that have participated and to future contributors.

The notion of using beer caps as a currency is an interesting concept to consider. I like it on two basic principals; the first being that it reflects an honest social behavior that brings with it the co-mingling of cultures and the the exchange of information from a diverse group of people. The second being that the beer cap itself is a commodity of no other usefulness, therefor devoid of further corporate or government determination.
Obviously there is no way that it would work in practice, but fictionally speaking, it could be an interesting exercise. The opportunity for potential anarchy on a massive scale one one hand and empowerment on an intimate level presents plenty creative venues to explore.
What with the carte blanche license that central banks such as the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and the Bank of Canada (and the like) have to print money - then why not explore, in contrast, the idea of private citizens creating their own localized 'lender of last resort' and determinining a fiat currency to resolve monitery issues at a community level?
