The unattended farm stand, with its honor box to deposit payment
for your fruit and vegetable purchases, is a site for local
interaction. Buyer and seller come to the same place, but they
do not have to be there at the same time. In contexts where
it would be unwise to rely so completely upon trust, vending
machines serve the same purpose.

are required to create a new civilization that is worthy of
our dignity as royal persons and our responsibility as divine
co-creators. If we do not create a global civilization where
peace and justice reign and where the spirit of delight and
celebration can be made to happen, then we have no one to blame
All for one, and one for all.

New Guinea Proverb
A young man walking on a long stretch of beach encountered
a young girl who was retrieving starfish and throwing them back
out into the sea. The young man inquired why the girl was throwing
the starfish back out to sea. There must be thousands of them
and there are miles of beach in this area. What possible difference
would it make? The girl paused thoughtfully as she prepared
to throw another starfish and replied, 'It will make a difference
to this one.'

Look at 2006 through a different lens and you'll see another
story, one that isn't about conflict or great men. It's a story
about community and collaboration on a scale never seen before.
It's about the cosmic compendium of knowledge Wikipedia and
the million-channel people's network YouTube and the online
