Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, & the Economic World

Kevin Kelly's landmark publication, Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, & the Economic World (April 13, 1995), included a chapter on E-money that was important enough to reproduce separately below.

In total, it includes six sections on E-money, which lay the framework for a nonpolitical, anonymous digital cash environment that the world still has not seen.
