    Hi David,

    I enjoyed your article: Is banking getting too complicated?
    Not sure if you noticed us in the Business Section of the Courier Mail on Monday – We were featured for our EyePrint Biometric technology and an app we developed to showcase it.


    The end of your article was quite dramatic, but not-quite-true for the EyePrintID software we have. We have the capability to revoke an encrypted security key which was generated using your biometrically unique EyePrint, and then generate a new one.
    Unlike fingerprints the EyePrint is not used literally and therefore provides far better security.

    Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to discuss this further.

    Best Regards,

    Glen Wade

    Hi David,

    ! saw your article on cashless economies. I am developing a model to scale the ROI of gifting over money. I call it crowd finding. Please look at my links here:


    Theqse (thesk) stands for The Quality Status Economy.

    I hope you like the material and wish to write about it.

      Not a fit for me, Frederick. Thank you anyway.

      • Frederick says:

        Really? With all the work you are looking at on cashless economies and money difficulties, this does not interest you? I guess you do not see the scope. One day you will. Thanks.

    Are you of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Origin?

    • David Wilson says:

      Hi Peter, no. I’m Anglo-Aussie with a bit of ancient Viking thrown in. Why do you ask?

      • petjuss says:

        Thank you for the quick answer!

        I’m a Communications student at UTS, doing a project on the reporting of Aboriginal issues in Australian news media, and doing some research to figure out who is writing about Aboriginal issues.

    Oh good – strikes me as an area that warrants more coverage.
