I called a radio show from Moab, Utah community radio on Friday and talked with Daniel Suelo. Suelo does not use money and lives in a cave. He dumpster dives for food and clothing. I am extremely interesting in his lifestyle as a metaphor for how the gift economy can replace the money economy. How can you really live without money? It is amazing what he is doing. His blog is here and provides some philosophy of his life. I asked him about his views on education. How can education be done without money and be self sustainable?
It would be interesting to translate the moneyless economy into the world of education. I need to develop skills to reduce my use of money to zero, but for now I will use money and establish a robust skills in in person and online free education that is done in a self sustainable way. For now, I will charge $25/hour to support myself and see if I can make an independent living doing it.
I would like to teach a course on photosynthesis for fun, and see if people are interested in the topic. I wonder if an online course could be developed to that end for a gift economy system to advert climate change.
