A week in Tweets: 9-15 January 2011

Another week and – here in southern Australia at least – one of extreme contrasts, with very heavy rainfall followed by blistering sunshine. Not sure if the same is true of the week’s collection of Tweets and links, but find it for yourself, anyway. Usual categories, of course.

A theme around trust versus value versus money, developed further in my post ‘Currency, value and trust‘:

  • oscarberg: The main currencies of business have always been information & trust. They let us exchange favors, goods/money etc <yes!!!
  • erikproper: @tetradian @oscarberg 200grams of trust in exchange for one espresso?
  • tetradian: @erikproper @oscarberg ‘pre-currency’ might be better term: monetary-type currency build _on top of_ trust etc
  • oscarberg: @erikproper I’d need to know (info) that you sell espressos (incl price) & trust that you do good espressos to buy from you cc: @tetradian
  • erikproper: @oscarberg Ah yes. But how are you going to pay for the espresso …
  • oscarberg: @erikproper If I recommend your espresso to others, can’t you give me one for free? 😉
  • erikproper: @oscarberg You would, as long as eventually I get “paid” in a “currency” that allows me to “hire” co-workers, “pay” the coffee supplier, etc
  • oscarberg: @erikproper you will get paid, if people trust you and have the info needed (like my recommendation) to buy your espresso
  • tetradian: @erikproper @oscarberg monetary payment represents _lack_ of trust in overall economy – to understand economics, focus on trust first?
  • erikproper: @oscarberg But in what …
  • tetradian: @erikproper “But in what …” – sometimes paid just in thanks! 🙂 – a currency is only a proxy for/in economics, not the economics itself!
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian lack of trust in economy by the everyday person. hedge fund and corp execs are happy
  • erikproper: @tetradian @oscarberg Monetary payment represents equalized trust? Enabling easier exchange of goods and favours by a unified value system?
  • taotwit: @erikproper @tetradian @oscarberg interesting – what other Trust equalisers exist in business? Should we model them explicitly?
  • erikproper: @taotwit @tetradian @oscarberg Really makes sense to more explicitly study value exchanges, and equalised notions of value and trust
  • taotwit: @erikproper @tetradian @oscarberg ok that sounds like Value Network Analysis or do you think VNA is lacking?
  • erikproper: @taotwit @tetradian @oscarberg Well. Is VNA in practice VN Modelling, or really critical VN Analysis, from a brdr prscptv, incldng non money
  • jdevoo: @erikproper @taotwit @tetradian @oscarberg in an e3value model, exchanges can modeled that way I believe. That’s not VNA-related though.
  • tetradian: @erikproper @taotwit @oscarberg @jdevoo re money and trust: getting too tangled for Twitter, will do blog-post instead! 🙂
  • taotwit: @tetradian @erikproper @oscarberg @jdevoo many situations require the modelling on non-money V & T b4 money value // Example: ROI-based Business Cases kill infrastructural/long-range investment. Such cases need strong value props which aren’t based on ROI.
  • 5Di: Reading: Chris Bird (@seabird20): “Enterprise Architecture – A Practitioner’s View: ROI Based Business Cases and Long Range Value”( http://twitthis.com/qtanhs )
