Open Source Ventures, Alternative Currencies

4 Apr

Some interesting posts over at John Robb’s Global Guerillas.

Open Source Venture:

We’ve been working on it for a couple of months now, and have learned some valuable lessons.  The most important lesson is that starting an open source venture is just like starting an open source insurgency.  You need a foco and an example (that provides a plausible promise).

Foco: “…small team, a vanguard if you will, that initiates the effort.” And an example “ignites the imagination.”

Is TPUSA an open source venture?

Alternative Currencies:

  1. Serve as a store of value.
  2. Enable a loyalty program.
  3. Jumpstart a local/virtual economy.
