"DYNDY is an effort at building a Pattern Language for Alternative and Complementary Money Systems to inform and empower grassroots communities with concepts and tools to overcome scarcity, instruments and reflections for the Exodus from proprietary money."


The philosophy of Dyndy, by Jaromil:

"As an artist and hacker, as well as a media theorist, Jaromil started off with a strong premise: capitalism is dead. In the post-capitalist era, the challenge is now for us to imagine the future of money, the most used of all media. The Italian-born activist began tracing an historical arch of capitalism, referring to Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Aedipus, according to which pre-capitalist times were marked by certain traditional “codes” that kept people in place in society. Quoting the French duo, as well as Giorgio Agamben, Jaromil also pointed out the disappearance of people behind machines, and the shifting of university and knowledge institutions to enterprises. True to his status of programmer, Jaromil proposed a people-driven re-coding of such traditions, previously decoded and upset by capitalism and the individualism it carried. Since, as he argues, grassroots organizations are more efficient than centralized ones, and it is no use to stack new axioms on top of the capitalist ones, the management of institutions in the post-capitalist era has to be conducted with a new challenge in mind: converting the economy “from a network of quantitative axiomatic equations to systems of qualitative relations that reproduce subjectivity”. For this reason, by using dyndy.net as a critical tool, Jaromil and Sachy aim to “develop further on the experience of LETS, ROCS, WIR, STRO, C3 and Bitcoin, VODO, Flattr, networking community values following the ethics of the Free Software Movement (digital) and Transition Towns (analog)”.
