The True Nature of Money and the Imminent Global Economic Crisis
This presentation will focus on helping you to better understand the foundation of our existing money system, why people are working harder for less, and how the new laws going into effect on July 1st will have strong repercussions for the quality of our daily lives. Includes a screening of the 30min film, "The American Dream."
I will steer clear as much as possible of 'conspiracy theories' and work with information that is widely accepted among the research economists.
A list of information resources for deepening your understanding about this topic will be provided.
Preregistration not required to attend. Suggested Donation $0-20.
The True Nature of Money: Solutions to the Economic Crisis
This presentation/discussion will explore the many potential avenues for experiencing abundance in the shadow of the collapse of the U.S. dollar. I will present on the many alternatives to money already being explored/discussed, and propose a new one that has not yet been fully realized.
All attendees will have the opportunity to discuss these various avenues of exchanging goods and services in lieu of the U.S. dollar.
Preregistration not required to attend. Suggested Donation $0-20.

We'll be hosting a workshop this Wednesday to discuss the potential of the
new Mutual Aid Network framework we're developing, and how we can apply it
in our own locations and support each other in doing so. I'd love to have a
healthy variety of perspectives and you all have a lot to contribute. I'm
also hoping you can help spread the word to others you think would be
interested. Activists, thinkers, journalists, co-opers, credit union folks,
community development folks, techies, whoever you think should be there.
Please invite anyone you think might be interested.
If you'd like to join online instructions are at bottom. We'll be using
gotomeeting, which you can download for free. Try a little early because
it'll take a few minutes.
I hope you can make it!

Timebanking is great at building our core economy of caregiving,
creativity, civic engagement and community building. Now we're learning
ways to connect it with other tools of mutual aid - cooperative saving and
investment pools, price-based mutual credit, shared resources and
cooperative ownership. We want to connect those kinds of resources in a
comprehensive network that can fund projects and people working to improve
These budding networks are called Mutual Aid Networks and are the
brainchild of Time For the World <http://timeftw.org/>, a team and project
originating in the Dane County TimeBank <http://danecountytimebank.org/>.
Time For the World Co-Coordinators Stephanie Rearick and Chris Petit are
fresh from a tour of potential MAN pilot sites and new economy conferences
and will present their learning and progress at Builders Workshop #16 -
Building a MAN: How Mutual Aid Networks can redesign work and build a
regenerative economy. We'll discuss how this can be applied to meet various
local goals, and take steps forward in building our own local MAN(s).

Builders' Workshops are a learning and leadership building journey hosted
by The Dane County TimeBank, our local mutual credit time exchange
http://danecountytimebank.org and Build For the World, our project to learn
from and share what we're doing with communities working on similar efforts
around the world http://BuildFTW.org.
At eight years old and over 2500 members, the Dane County TimeBank uses
timebanking to facilitate several projects that have positive impacts on
common social ills. From the TimeBank Youth Court's creation of
neighborhood-based safety nets that keep kids out of the juvenile justice
system, to our wellness and disability inclusion projects, to the Allied
Community Coop where we're working with other neighborhood organizations to
create a new model for community health on Allied Drive, we're showing how
timebanking can be an integral part of creating a better world. And we're
sharing our learning in a global network of mutual support.

I really appreciate this. I hadn't considered it, but it's a lot like
the distinction between "homeless person" and "person without a home"
or "person experiencing homelessness". More than analogous, in fact.
Thanks very much for bringing this up, Vicky.

Unfortunately, I do not think there's any chance of getting access to
our new space before Tuesday, July 1st. So I think trucking it on
Wednesday is still our best plan, and this weekend should still be
reserved for cleaning the old space, so maybe we can get our deposit

Err, never mind. Now he says he'd rather do a single day of moving
than spread across multiple days. So we're allowed Wednesday, with as
many trips as we need. Less disruptive for them, and less of a
logistical rush for us anyway, so it is what it is.
So the moving truck will happen Wednesday morning as planned.
We had planned a major truckloading starting 10:30am on Wednesday. But
some folks were also talking about doing an advance truckload tomorrow
(Tuesday) to help lighten the load.
We don't have keys yet, and we won't have keys until July 1, so we
still have to coordinate with our landlord-friends when we move things
in. I talked to J, the owner, and he said that space isn't an issue -
there is plenty of storage space ready for us in the basement and the
ballroom mezzanine, for example. But scheduling time is the tricky
He's open to receiving a truckload of things tomorrow. He said that
around noon would be the best time for us to do it, but to call ahead
He understands that we want to move things Wednesday too, and will
cooperate as best he can, but requested that we try to condense things
into as few trips as possible because they are so busy with many other
things and are pressed for time.
So there it is. Folks who were talking about a truck - what are the
actual logistics for getting a truck tomorrow? Who's willing to show
up tomorrow morning and move boxes?
Congratulations everyone on the new lease!
I went to this URL:
and i noticed that the text is rendered in low-contrast, meaning that the
text itself is grey on a white background. This is annoying to read, and
downright frustrating to impossible for people with low-vision, like a
dear friend of mine.
Please, if you have editing powers on this wiki (or any webpage) don't let
Apple win by making low-contrast the norm: make your text black on white
or something equally readable. The whole point is for it to be read.
Thank you very much for taking this seriously.
Yes, all of *you*!
Sudo Room is MOVING to 4799 Shattuck, a place formerly known as The Ligure
Club, and later as *The Omni*.
Sudo Room has co-formed The Omni Collective, which will maintain a space to
share and commune, hosting ~10 collectives, projects, and organizations.
There we will forge a commons.
The Omni Collective acts as a spokes-council for its member-groups; yet it
requires participation from all of us to function and grow.
