Last week, at a breakfast in Germany, Otto Scharmer and I asked a jet-lagged Nipun :) for some spontaneous thoughts. I'm so glad we did! As I say at the end, and what can't be captured on film, the presence at our table itself touched something deep within me. We will be using the Designing for Generosity talk and this video, for the final week of our edX (MITx) course, U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society and Self.

    So excited to watch this with the Denver ULabbers at our Wednesday Hub meeting. There are three of us, a philosophy professor and storyteller, a young software developer, and myself, a generosity entrepreneur. We have the most engaging conversations based off the ULab curriculum and I've shared with them the Service Space model as well. It makes me happy to see these two organizations/Oak tree's roots supporting one another.

    Nipun is a very beautiful person an I feel very inspired. I am reflecting about all this and thinking about my roots. What are my personal roots? To whom my roots are linked? Sometimes I, feel like I-tree, am floating in space.

    Wow - so much looking forward to it! Deeply grateful for the field you create and the huge space you hold for deep - I would say - LIFE CHANGING SHIFTS and PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION.

    Apparently Somik will be interviewing Otto in an upcoming Awakin call and posted a request for questions. Mine is:

    It appears that many if not most economic problems arise or are exacerbated the condition that money currently serves two opposing functions: medium-of-exchange and store-of-value. Could this not be alleviated by reconceptualizing money as a public utility - like roads, water, sewerage - something to be *used* rather than a thing to be owned (and therefore under-productively hoarded)?
