Message #10940 from Thomas Donaldson
>The real value of money is that it lets us buy and make something

>and we may well come to a state in which most of what we have is
>virtually free. But then there are things that we do not NOW have
>(and at any time there will be such things). Even if we can make
>it ourselves, given the design, the design becomes the valuable

>the best form of that something in return.
>Best and long, long life to all,
