This is an excellent point.

What the fiat, debt-based monetary system "values" is very different from things that most healthy humans and healthy social systems "value". The monetary sense of the word "value" is thus divorced from the philosophical, personal, and moral sense of "value", in a way that makes modern industrialized society, for want of a better word, psychotic.

To help fix this, I have been working with a group creating alternative currencies-- basically, "open source money"-- where the currency itself values whatever the community of its users value. This is similar in many regards to the FOSS movements, and what we're doing is not only based on the technology that came from the work of Richard M. Stallman, but also based on some of his philosophical and tactical approaches.

The group, by the way, is here: http://sfbace.org, and the code for our website is here: http://github.com/bace/oscurrency ; it's forked from a group in Austin Texas that originally wrote it.

If you like hacking Ruby-on-Rails or CSS/XHTML/JS and want to help, let me know off-list, and I'll send you the link to the development site and the bugtracker. Most of the active tickets that we need done are UI enhancements and GUI stuff. I am doing the best I can with that, but I'm a command-line guy, so I'm kind of out of my element.
