Mar-2012: The Need for "Money" Related Singularity

I had the pleasure to give a short talk about 3D3C markets in front of 400+ people at a recent Singularity conference in Israel.

There were lots of talks about future technologies. My one take: we also need some "money" related singularity. Without a new way to deal with money -- one that cross nations, allow tracking, and faciliate micro payments (sub cents) -- we will miss many of the global benefits of these new technologies.
