When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
So what is it?
Spirituality -- we must meet the critical mass to ascend to higher realms
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
***Fear is the biggest veil of Maya. It is all based on Fear.***
- Religion: Fear to go to hell.
- Greed: Fear of the other taking my goods, my life, my BEing.
- Economic disparities: Fear of giving others the same power as I have.
- Hatred: Fear of the old, of what it has been done to me (person, or group of persons) in the past.
- Prejudice: Based on Ego and Belief Systems: Fear of not being right, and though, being judged by the other too (my Beliefs are reflected in a mirror)
Can we change the world?

btw, just to clarify about our status...the app is half done in RoR. We already have 700 hours in to the rails app. However, I'm seeking a new programmer now, and new programmers always want to start everything from scratch. Of course, the architectural work already done is easy to port. But starting from scratch again is not ideal, unless someone like you wanted to do it partly on an equity basis, and ideally it was not a one man show.
Yes, I know all about the RoR controversy over scaling. I've seen those articles, and there are many others that contradict them. The counter argument is that scalability is more a matter of architecture than language or framework.
If you want to rewrite my whole app for me for next to nothing in your language of choice, I'd certainly be open to discussing it.
As you may know, Ning was made with a Java core. Coding in Java of course takes a lot longer than using a scripting language. I don't think it's an option for me, unless you want to take it on.
I really appreciate your comments on my blog entries and profile. I like that you combine a technical and spiritual outlook. Your work on legal and banking related software sounds interesting.
The Selfport software is based in a social network, like Ning/iPeace. It combines internal finance structures, which allow users to set up financial relations with each other, and can support p2p micro-finance as it exists now, and a new form that we're developing. It supports relations between conventional businesses and individuals, social businesses, non-profits and so on...all of which have reason to make profiles on the site.
The idea is that we are developing various kinds of entrepreneurial tools, which work something like apps on Facebook, or Open Social (which work here)...although they are more neatly integrated in to our UI. These can be used by individuals to make money in most walks of live, by learning and teaching, working together on projects to produce community created media, and in various ways.
Currently the app is being developed in ruby on rails. We made a pass in which is was mostly done in PhP...but abandoned that code. Recently the work has been in agile mode. Of course the relation of UML to agility is an ongoing area of concern. The spec for this project is extremely detailed, and runs over 300 pages of screen captures, with all parts numbered and explained.
Back to the macro view of how to help the world, the idea is to make something that works for people to make money on a scale suitable to live on in the first world, while at the same time giving tools that allow micro-finance and social business to scale, to provide a continuity from poverty all the way through first world standards of living, so that everyone can have all opportunities.
I have been doing this on my own money, which means it has been on a shoestring, for something of this scope, and has made it slow, with set-backs, because of the limitations it has placed on my software development budget. So I'm always eager to talk with anyone technical who might take an interest.
