11 Imagining the future of IDEAS FOR PROJECT

Page history last edited by Daryl 12 years, 12 months ago


On this page, you will find ideas and resources for your final project.  Some of these ideas we will discuss in class so everyone will have a chance to express their thoughts about the topic.  Other ideas will be there for you to discover;

but if you want to discuss it in class, then by all means, bring it up!


The Future of Money


This is from CBC's radio show called SPARK with host Nora Young.  The show is all about technology and how it influences our lives.  This episode (139 from Feb 27, 2011) is about the future of money, specifically, how over 70% of Kenyans are using a digital currency called MPESA.  The beginning part of the show gives a brief but comical history of the development of currency and then describes some of the changes happening with DIGITAL CURRENCY in Kenya.  This is important for the rest of the world because the digital currency removes the middle men (BANKS!) and that would revolutionize our global economy system.  It has some very provocative ideas about the future of money.   You can listen to it here:


Future of Money.mp3  (it is 24 minutes long) or you can go to the SPARK website and listen to it there.
