An open space for global conversation
We began exploring the New Economy meme together from the moment Occupy Cafe "opened" last October. In that short time, this decades-old idea has begun to develop rapidly in the public consciousness, to the point where it is now being spoken of as "a movement."
Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard suggests that new ways of organizing every sector of human society are emerging simultaneously all around us. Yet this "Shift" is still not apparent to the majority of humanity, or even to many who are bringing it forth, because it is a systemic transformation that requires a global perspective to be appreciated fully.
Part of our task together is to tell one another our personal pieces of this story, so that we can collectively "re-envision prosperity" as something that is not just theoretically available to us all, but actually at our fingertips in this very moment.
Offer your thoughts below, and please join us for our Cafe Call as well.

http://www.zurker.com/ is a new user-owned social network in which users can either buy or earn (by recruiting new participants) shares in the network, which will go private when 1 million shares have been given out. It is currently only by invitation, so there's not much of a site available until you get invited.
How does one go about getting an invitation?
