There is a list at the Faculty of Econometrics of the University of Openness. The list below includes tools taken from that list.
Stephen: Regarding Sergio's request, I would suggest that he go to http://ccit.wji.com which is a working group for programmers of new social economic software, primarily relating to complementary currency systems now but also the range of other important tools that the members of this group are talking about. They also have a discussion group.
At TheTransitioner.org there are the following ressources:
- list of Complementary Currency Software Projects: http://www.thetransitioner.org/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=CcProjects
- running alpha version of the Currency Module for the Tikiwiki http://om.neurd.net

ohn Waters has raised a crucial subject around pooling of effort.
His post reminded me of attending twice yearly gatherings of a group called Netreach in the late 1980s. They all used to descend on the Honey Cafe in mid Wales for a weekend, fill Eluned Hurn's cellar with computers and spend the whole w/e talking (to non-technie me) incomprehensible gobbledy gook or geekspeak! But they were pioneers. They were a mixture of IT professionals and inspired amateurs who were passionate about online communication. They were all working out how to get the existing IT tools to work better, how to get modems to talk to each other in the same language, how to work out common protocols for communication etc. etc. Not long after that HTML was invented, the Web as we know it took off and the world was completely changed. But I have no doubt that all their efforts (and thousands like them around the world) played a part in the Web revolution.
It seems to me that we are at a similar stage in CCs.
We need now to develop better tools that will enable us to generate the Web 2.0 of CCs!
The 'problem' for us is that only a few of us are paid to work in this field and others ( me included before I started being paid to do it) put in much effort without reward, except the satisfaction of positive change. If we were a CC corporation we would have millions of dollars to spend on R&D. So how do we do it armed only with crazy vision and enthusiasm? We must encourage and support each other!
I currently lead a Task and Finish group (meaning a group with a clear remit and timetable for delivery) on sustainability within the UK time banking movement which will report this September with a tool for analysing sustainable practice.
John is exercising leadership on the question of coordinating effort around IT tools. I want to suggest that anyone who is particularly interested in this aspect form a similar Task and Finish group with clear aims together with John to evaluate best practice and form a strategy for moving things forward in IT.
