“The Token Economy: It is time we all *get paid for every single job we do” by @dentacoin https://t.co/4tdm5lxd4u (http://twitter.com/fabianacecin/status/868451884578869248?s=17)
and after too many convos/readings/et-al.. where people are thinking if we just replace currency with tokens we’ll be good.. while i’m just thinking.. they are one and the same.. both seek to measure/validate transactions.. and so .. compromise us.. (ie: 10 day care ness)
*get paid for every single job we do..? what about interpretive labor et al… who measures/validates/pays-for that..?
tokenism: The effort of including a token employee to a workforce is usually intended to create the impression of social inclusiveness and diversity (racial, religious, sexual, etc.) in order to deflect accusations of social discrimination.

@ Please give us your views on Tokens
tying token ness to internet appreciation piece:
IMHO Internet = the most complex worldwide communication system ever built by humans, with the help of computer science, electronics and optics.
let’s not token ize that
The formal definition (which I checked with my fellow internet technology engineers) is posted on an earlier blog of mine:” An internet, network of networks, is a voluntary agreement among network operators to exchange traffic for their mutual benefit. (The Internet is a prototype internet.) That’s all — it’s an agreement.It’s not a network, or a Thing of any kind. Part of the agreement is to exchange routing information. In order to reduce conflict, IANA assigns address blocks.
the world has changed. Tokens represent a *1000X improvement over the status quo, and **those don’t come around very often.
