Re: <nettime> P2P Gift Credit Cards - Gift Finance. Press Release.

With all due respect, this sounds like a Ponzi scheme wrapped in social rhetoric. I have heard it done among some women I know where the model of the gift economy and warm fuzzy feminist sisterly sharing was used to bilk people. Needless to say, few were "re-gifted."  Here the booty is your email address or phone number. It's a bit like Walmart trying to entice you to their website with what amounts to a lottery.

More details please, before I click on any link.
