I used to think of the web as a web of documents, but now I see it as a web of documents and web of data. I took what I saw, but maybe I never understood it from the beginning. See TBL's original proposal. By random chance I picked up a book titled "Intelligent Databases: Object-Oriented, Deductive Hypermedia Technologies" by Parsaye et. al. After reading some of it, I'm seeing some trends. It seems that the web is pulling a lot of ideas from it and doing it in a distributed fashion. now to figure out what is going on today...simple answers, I don't know

I've realized that I do not understand the financial system. Would the existing financial system support something like MNDF, or does it need to be augmented? If so, how can it be done so it does not alienate anyone? Speaking of alienation, how would people like Tim Berners-Lee go about it? He says, "This is for Everyone". He even founded The World Wide Web Foundation http://www.webfoundation.org/, which is "devoted to achieving a world in which all people can use the Web to communicate, collaborate and innovate freely, building bridges across the divides that threaten our shared future". I certainly feel that the web is very powerful tool, and agree with Tim that even more changes could occur with the semantic web (should it exist). It is my hope that these changes do involve everyone.

I feel in somewhat of a crisis. I am doing this because it appears to work best for me at the present time. But that seems selfish. I think, "why don't I let it go"? I think it will help people. If that is the case, then it is worth pursuing. On my pursuit though, I feel it would be best to listen to others, and be humble. I hope I can do that.

I noticed Michel Bauwen's publicising Open Tech Forever on Indiegogo. On their funding campaign they say, "Open Tech Forever is helping create the Open Source Economy: a collaborative society that shares its knowledge, skills, technologies, and resources to overcome artificial barriers and achieve abundance and prosperity for all." They also have a website at http://opentechforever.com/. Aaron Makaruk, who is involved in the project, also gave a descriptive TEDx talk in Madrid about Open Source Ecology. The founder, Yoonseo KANG also will speaking at SDF 2013 . Other's mentioned include Johnathan Yelenick who is heavily into permaculture and Tristan Copley Smith who produces videos for the project.

I haven't looked enough into various models to use linked data. Presently, I have no idea what will truly work. Thanks to Patrick Anderson I know of some new things. He has two blogs that I know of: (http://imputedproduction.blogspot.com/) and (http://socialsufficiencycoalition.blogspot.com/).
Two Discoveries: Stuff like the Danube Project and (apparently) similar stuff Henry Story is working on
I just discovered that Henry Story (http://bblfish.net/) is doing some stuff like this thanks to his post on Markus Sabadello's The Three Visions video (seeAlso: http://projectdanube.org/). Here are what appear to be the latest links: https://blogs.oracle.com/bblfish/entry/supply_networks for his blog post, and http://java.net/projects/sommer which includes a file, and a description for something titled AddressBook in the svn repo as well as something online ( http://java.net/projects/sommer/sources/svn/content/trunk/www/AddressBook.html?rev=515). Awesome, bookmark for the future.
