I'm excited people are working on a timebank! Devin of Open Source (Permabank) says he has a timebank ready to put in operation.  

I'm sending this email to people I have talked to about an OWS Timebank. Some people are working on a model or variations on a model i.e. for building in incentive , Alternative Currency has created a dollar bill for their project, some people have organizational input to contribute to a model, some people have models up and running outside of OWS.  

Is a Teach-In the best idea for sharing ideas?  It can be facilitated so everyone gets a chance to speak. 

Can everyone who wants to contribute please send me an abstract? A list of what they want to teach? 

Perhaps we can agree to set up a Timebank experiment soon and made a proposal to the G.A. or spokes council.  

I'm happy to put this together. Anyone who wants to help please let me know. 

Possible times:  2:00 Charlotte's place next Thursday and 4:30 at 60 Wall St, the Atrium.
