Recognition to Our Contributors and Colleagues
This website, www.complementarycurrency.org and www.appropriate-economics.org are not the products of one person, but of a team working together to build two large, useful and popular websites. They deserve to be named and given credit for their contributions to these websites and to the complementary currency movement.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank :
Steve Shorter and Erik Stainsby, who provided the original domain name: http://ccdev.lets.net and server space for free for 5 years, and together with Chris Hohner, encouraged me to learn html and how to manage an apache server.
Thomas Greco and Bernard Lietaer, who provided more than 10 years of encouragement and collaboration on promoting the application of complementary currencies in a third world context.
Henk van Arkel, Peter Moers and colleagues at Strohalm, who helped to define useful and practical applications for the websites and give regular feedback on it.
Albert Fløde, who volunteered to build the ccDatabase, ccGallery, ccLibrary and ccLinks php/mysql programs before his life was cut short.
Matthew Slater, who helped fix errors in the code and make sure that everything was running right.
Anne-Cecil Ragot contributed a very thorough review of the website.
Those who translated the ccDatabase into their language:
German: Ludwig Shuster, Paul Aron
Japanese: Yasuyuki ‘Miguel’ Hirota
Portuguese: Daniel Tygel, Camilo Ramada
Spanish: Mario Moura, Daniel Tygel, Monica Ara
French: Lucie Contet, Susan Germano, Andreia Pedro
Dutch: Gerard van der Rijst
Thai: Jim Puntasen
Italian: Mohsin Jaffer
I would also like to thank those colleagues, too many to be named, who have offered their documents for the Library or Materials section, and those who have collaborated with me to contribute new documents to the website, or sent in their constructive criticisms and feedback, and kind words of encouragement.
