It’s time once again for The Future of Money and Technology Summit in San Francisco on April 23, 2012. Each year this community of visionaries dive deeper into the subject of alternate economics as the public narrative around the subject also increases. This is truly an important event.

In full disclosure, the producers of FOM&T trusted me to assemble this panel to advance a theme that was initiated at Sibos Innotribe Sessions (Toronto 2011). I elected to NOT appoint myself moderator – Dr. V is much more experienced in that role. Instead, I will attempt to speak for the Ingenesist. The word ingenesist is derived from the Latin word for engineer – an ingenesist is any person who creates real value through their social, creative, and intellectual abilities. For this reason, the panel is titled:
The New Value Movement
Past panels in this segment at FOM&T included discussions about non-quantifyable exchanges and intangible capital. This panel introduces the New Value Movement where emergent ideas and associated web applications seek to allow non-quantifiable exchanges to become “quantifiable” and Intangible Capital to become “tangible”.
Like the Beatles once sang “Money Can’t Buy Me Love”, New Value refers to those things that cannot necessarily be produced through the allocation of classical factors such as land, labor, and capital. Rather, the next generation of entrepreneurs will allocate resources of social capital, creative capital, and intellectual capital in order to produce the things that society needs.
Innovations such as trust networks, knowledge inventories, social games, and abundance capitalism will become increasingly important and hold great promise for hedging the inevitable constraints on fiat currency.

Speaking to the emergence of a new class of business methods is Joe Johnson, CEO and head coder of runaway startup called Connect.me.

In Amy’s world of executives consulting, the ingenesist includes the designer new products. In Patricks world, the ingenesist may be an innovator from Anytown USA trying to navigate the intricacies of law, money, and finance. In Joe’s world, the ingenesist is the cloud of specialized skill holders looking for each other to create value together. I often argue that all value not created directly by Mother Nature, was created by the ingenesist within all of us.
