Think of Foundups is a new social p2p experiment to usher in an new open P2P business model that will ushers in new P2P open corporations that might just help usher in Jeremy Rifkin's The Empathic Civilisation that he states is required for our survival as a species. Please join me in helping us launch this experiment by becoming a patron for as little as $1 per month. Together we JUST might save our planet, our species and the other 70% of species slated for extinction by 2080.
