However different our enterprises may seem, we share your interest in providing open space where free exchanges can flourish. That open space, real or virtual, is the greenhouse where the free market rainforest sprouts to life.
Where we work, on the web, 'information-space' is unlimited, so infinite exchanges have become possible. We believe that more (and more satisfying) exchanges will thrive when nourished by the freely-circulating information available today: Time and valuables that might otherwise go to waste can be exchanged more readily because distance and scheduling will no longer divert possible transactions.
To illustrate how new interactive media can make markets more fruitful, we've enclosed some recent editions of San FranZiskGo!, our weekly listing of Bay Area events --viewed by hundreds on the Transaction Net web site, hundreds on the WeLL BBS, and several thousand via Craig's List (in its email, Java calendar, and Marimba channel incarnations)--as well as our "Pick Up Tix" proposal, by which tickets for upcoming events--tickets that will lose all value if not sold before showtime--could be exchanged for volunteer work, to everyone's benefit.
Each of these projects creates community capital--lasting value for everyone to enjoy--simply by opening a space where free, informed exchanges can take place. Take a look, and let us know what you think; we're eager to respond to your challenges. Thank you for your attention.
