Bitcoin and the Speculative Anarchist

I think it's worth considering the history of other substitutes for government provided currency when discussing the use of Bitcoin, etc, as an option. Specifically I'm thinking of the use of company script. In the U.S. this was more prevalent in the 19th century and brought with it (along with the fluctuating gold/silver standard) greater market volatility. The use of company script also provided an easy way to exploit workers by price gouging at the company store. This practice hasn't disappeared, i.e. and I suspect that with these new forms of currency it will be much of the same.


Sesame Street

Another great one: with Philip Glass.

Not sure if these are experimental but they often made me think of space in way I hadn't previous to reading them:
