New Stories: Money and Astrology with Ian Altosaar of the Mystical Money Machine
Kicking off a new podcast series - 'New Stories' - it was great to hear from Ian Altosaar in Estonia, who brings finance and astrology together in one fascinating service: the Mystical Money Machine.
Both money and astrology are subjects riddled with collective stories, many rooted in fear and ignorance. In this conversation, we open up the narratives to include abundance, cosmic assistance and collaboration.

Dealing with 'Dark and Muddy Tech' - An OurNet 'ONversation' 28-12-18
Has ‘Tech’ become darker and muddier in 2018?
"Over these 12 months our relationship with tech has both been darker and more muddy because it becomes increasingly clear that all the bright and shiny positive potentials of tech are at the risk of being darkened by forced misuse of data, manipulation, supervision, no respect of the citizen, no respect of individual rights," says Margrethe Vestager the EU's Competition Commissioner.
Commissioner Vestager, interviewed by Baroness Lane-Fox - a board member of Twitter and guest editor of this morning's Today radio programme on BBC Radio 4 - added that “while dismantling companies had served Brussels well in the past, the speed at which changes occurred in the tech sector made it a less appropriate response”.
“Instead,” Vestager said, “the commission might look at how larger firms got access to data and resources in a bid to limit their power.”
But will this really be the best solution? Isn’t this model how we’ve found ourselves in such a pretty pass? One that features giant corporations whose overwhelming power is barely matched by that of the bureaucrats, who we vainly hope might control them?
Greater regulation and centralised government are ruled out here in our latest ‘ONversation’, where OurNet CEO Michael Brodie suggests: “Fiddling around with data protection is just whistling into the wind.”
In our conversation, he asks the question: “Do we want to organise ourselves in a way that encourages people to push the boundaries and succeed extremely well by manipulating and using each other? Or do we want to start to reconsider the fundamental rules that we have?”
For us at OurNet it’s back to the fundamental rules of ‘social intelligence’, not more of the status quo and standard way of competition and fear. The latter doesn’t seem to be working, and is actually the perfect recipe for a ‘dark and muddy’ Internet.
Clearly, we need to change the way the system currently works; a system which rewards us when we misuse each other. We need a fundamental and systemic transformation that deals with the ‘split personality’ discussed in the podcast. We need to address how and why our sense of competitiveness is allowed to undermine our wish to care for, and support, each other.
“What we know gives us satisfaction is connection with, and support of, other people”, says Michael Brodie who would rather see a ‘cult of care and support’ than the Internet’s pervasive cult of egocentricity, individualism and polarised opinion.
That said, he does however believe that people are truly trying to do their best, however mis-guided their behaviour seems to be. A sentiment shared by Martha Lane-Fox who agrees that “everyone is trying to do their best and make things work”.
“There is an increasing awareness of the fact that we really need to do something and to do that together,” she added.
‘Together’ is surely the key to any successful shift in a socially intelligent’ society that wishes to be enlightened and arise from the mud. And together, let’s co-create a happy and prosperous 2019 with a brighter, less murky Internet...

Coming Out - A Rite of Passage?
In a time of crisis for male identity and when rites of passage and growing up are optional, does the potentially terrifying ordeal of coming out give gay men character-building access to personal power?

The Pure Portugal Podcast #4 - Late Summer 2018
For those of you who like a longer-form, immersive experience, here's the Pure Portugal omnibus podcast - Episode 4 - which brings together recent weekly episodes that have looked at: progressive community living, cooperative hemp growing and the sweet, orange comfort food known as baked beans.
As ever your feedback is welcome, so do drop me a line to email@example.com
As it’s been said, if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
One intentional community that chose to ‘go together’ some 40 years ago, kicks off Episode 4, namely 'Tamera' - based in Portugal’s Alentejo region, on an impressive and innovative 335-acre site, addressing such big issues as:
How will humanity live in the future?
How can we as humanity resolve the crises we’ve caused and survive on Earth?
Can this planet become the paradise it is meant to be?
Hear Head of Tamera's Global Campus Vera Kleinhammes' on this recording and find out more about their inspiring and amazing research, education and outreach at www.tamera.org
The second segment of the podcast arose from this post in the Pure Portugal Facebook Group:
"It is done! The Lusicanna cooperative (for the production of industrial hemp in Portugal) was founded yesterday, August 24th in In the sweltering heat of a typical Alentejo summer day in Serpa. The six founders are currently producing hemp in Alentejo, Algarve and Castelo Branco area."
"One of our main goals is to enable as many farmers as possible to join this exciting market. If you are interested in becoming part of the emerging hemp industry in Portugal, keep tabs on Lusicanna! We will be open for new members starting next season!"
Hear Carl Munson in conversation with Jurgen of the Lusicanna Co-operative about their launch, the long-term strategy, and the outstanding potential benefits that industrial and medicinal hemp growing could offer towards rural regeneration in Portugal.
