Met with Dan twice in an "online" session. Unfortunately I was not able to have as much time for the second, due to some connectivity issues. However,... the insight he has and the theoretical background he has I consider very valuable. Thank you, Dan, for taking the time to talk with me. I hope that we are able to have several more of these discussions to flesh out some of these ideas just a little bit more. Thank you.show more

The conceptual framework of the different 'tiers' or levels of detail of history books was very helpful. Also the tip about contacting college profess...ors for more specific resources. I like that he provided specific examples of books that fit into the different categories so I could understand what he meant better. He was very patient with my frequent clarifying questions, which I really appreciated. Very helpful service!show more

Such a wonderful introduction to time banking and radical economics. Dan knows his stuff (and his history). His talk delivered, and his well time wit,... made it memorable. If you want to know more about radical economics, or interested in any of his other deal packages, go ahead and propose an exchange! (I can't wait to take him up on his deals for politics!). Highly recommend.show more

Knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Gave me a lot of great resources to further my studies in history in the direction that I wanted to go.
