Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Enjoy your prototyping.

For my money (as it were), keeping score is the problem. Any solution that continues to privilege keeping score as the point of the exercise will fail in exactly the same way that all financial and political systems have failed so far - with massive inequalities of resource consumption and power differentials.

If you want to bury your head in the sand about that and pretend to yourself that you've solved a problem you haven't even begun to think about, while marching to some kind of market-made utopia created by swapping one kind of faith-based token for another, that's fine with me.

Just don't expect me to cheer and clap because I don't support yet another financialised dinosaur system with a few bits swapped around.

The real test of a system isn't what's being counted, but the predictive insight, creativity and sustainability of the decisions it outputs.

Using those criteria, swapping Unit 1 for Unit 2 is going to make no practical difference of any kind.
