The current financial system views spaces as valuable only in terms of their distance to financial headquarters or data centers, which off er nothing more than the possibility to trade stocks a half a millisecond faster.
Capital and time have conspired to annihilate space, and negate place. In contrast to this, I am proposing an IDEA BANK which would shift the valuation in our financial system away from the unidirectional transfer of data towards the open exchange of ideas. At its core, aft er all, these numbers and algorithms which define the stock market are simply quantified and digi-fied human ideas.
Through uploading them and exporting them to an off - site ultra-secure server farm, we simply restrict access to these ideas and inhibit discussion and critique which could improve the way our economy operates.
