Clacton Festival, big thanks, some info on my talk

Well I really, really enjoyed this, a delightful pocket festival and a big thank you to the organisers and everyone I met. Managed to make a certain amount of noise, probably too much.

Also ate a lot of cake, that does happen if one is unsupervised. I am hoping for some action from the government this year to stop this and the accompanying sugar rush. Secondary legislation of some kind will probably be fine, if clearly drafted, community health is an ideal starting point, hint, hint. People must be PROTECTED and we must THINK OF THE CHILDREN, mustn't we?

Here below is the notes I used for alternative money talk. Contact me if you'd like further reading etc. I'll probably upgrade this real-soon-now (that is, sometime next year).

Also, a fair amount of general (non software) discussion going on at: and I'd recommend: as a pretty level book on currency reform. It's a little USA centric for history though. Interlibrary loans will probably get you a copy but it's about $20 at the moment anyway.

A connected book and a really great read is: which deals with thinking about and designing systems, in general. The parts about feedback are applicable to interest and money supply, to take a really simple example.

Anyone who'd like to ask any other questions or get in touch, please just use the contact form on this website.
