Healthy signal infrastructure is for all Green purposes not just buying. The more we can do to promote hardware standards that decrease the hardware requirements we must ourselves deploy to support Consumerium Services, and modular hardware to cut e-waste, the easier it will be to cooperate with other essential projects.

Non-buying purposes the HSI can be used for: voting, dating, rendezvous like a flash mob, orienteering games, betting and investing (only healthy to a limited degree, and there is no way to tell betting from investing, period), and almost any kind of mobile work like sales or transport or sustainable forestry. Of course, any kind of forestry or fishing or investing or sales or transport that is not sustainable is not healthy, so, a truly healthy infrastructure just doesn't help anyone do these things, or, better yet, it charges more to use it if you are using more or damaging more styles of capital than sustainable users would require.

In the ideal case, the Consumerium Services and even the hardware requirements would be delivered for free to all users anywhere in the world, and this would be paid for by charging other users of the same infrastructure for their other uses - charging more for those doing more damage to Earth. This is one option for how to set up the Consumerium License.

Probable features of the HSI:
