As I was scribing, I minimized my input in the conversation, and I'd like to share some thoughts I had about the alternative currency.


Charles Hall brought up the concept that the alternative currencies could be considered as part of conformance.  He emphasized that it wasn't a proposal, just a mind expanding thought on how alternative currencies could be used.


I acknowledge the concept, but I'm opposed to it.  I think that we should limit ourselves to using the first currency (hypothetically I'll refer to as "points") for conformance.  First, it will make for some complex "math" to utilize more than one form of currency for conformance.  If we have any other currency, that currency should not be necessary for achieving "conformance", and instead should be used to advance "bonus" levels.  Otherwise we are not advancing any approach that would facilitate a means for content authors to "go the extra mile".


That's my thought that I didn't include in the call because I am very much a single tasker and scribing was my task J
