The Eco is the proposed name for the common currency that the West African Monetary Zone (WAMZ) plans to introduce in the framework of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). After its introduction, the goal is to merge the new currency with the West African CFA franc (used by the French-speaking members of ECOWAS since 1945) at a later date. This will create a common currency for much of West Africa.
Eco (video game)
Eco is a wire-frame 3D evolution life simulation game developed by Denton Designs for the Amiga and Atari ST. It was released in 1988 and published by Ocean Software.
The player initially uses mouse or joystick to control an insect, which must avoid predators, find some food, and then find another insect of the same species and mate with it. The player can then unlock one of several " genes", altering the value of which changes their creature. Some changes are only cosmetic and leave the creature in the same species; others can, for instance, make the initial insect a new species with wings and capable of flight. After unlocking multiple genes the player can become a fast dog-like quadruped, a bird, a scorpion or a humanoid. The game does not end until the player starves, is killed by another creature, or deliberately "evolves" into a plant.
ECO (Domain Driven Design)
ECO (Enterprise Core Objects), is a software framework suited for Domain-Driven-Design (DDD) from Capable Objects AB, designed to increase productivity by utilizing facilities such as Object-relational mapping (ORM) for persisting domain objects, UML models for domain classes and executable State Machines for behavior control defined in UML notation. The ECO framework is intended to be an all-in-one solution for enterprise development and includes in-memory transactions and Undo/ Redo functionality as well as easy binding with UI layer. ECO unites ORM framework and UML modeling tools with instant code generation and an OCL expression evaluator for simplified in-memory and DB queries, business rules and other useful facilities.
ECO5 is targeted to .NET Framework and is only available for development environment Visual Studio. Users of RAD Studio can still download ECO4.
ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians is an evangelical Presbyterian denomination in the United States. As a Presbyterian church, ECO adheres to Reformed theology and Presbyterian polity. It was established in 2012 by former congregations and members of the Presbyterian Church (USA), abbreviated PC(USA). Dissatisfaction with the PC(USA) spiked in 2011 when it decided to allow gay and lesbian clergy to serve in the denomination. This action led to the founding of ECO.

Usage examples of "eco".
Ego and Eco were still staring at each other across an unbridgeable gulf, and the two absolutisms were altogether incompatible.
Ego camps still absolutize the noosphere, the Eco camps are still absolutizing the biosphere, utterly unaware that this contributes every bit as much as the Ego camps to the destruction of the biosphere itself.
Ego means the less of Eco, and vice versawith no way whatsoever to consolidate their equally important claims in a new and emergent and integrative growth.
Eco camp, self-isolated agency, however important, had sealed off the rich networks of unions and communions with nature and other cultures, and thus the more reenchanted the world, the better.
Ego, of inserting it back into the larger currents of Life and Love, the Eco camps ended up inadvertently, paradoxicallychampioning modes of knowing and feeling that were supremely egocentric and flagrantly narcissistic.
Idealist movement was, in the West, the last great attempt to introduce true Ascent and, most important, to integrate it believably with true Descentthe Ego and the Eco both taken up, preserved and negated, honored and released, in all-encompassing Spirit.
Eco camps would seize most immediately upon the repressions and exclusionary practices that reason could, and often did, bring in its wake.
Taylor summarizes the seemingly impossible task of rEconciling Ego and Eco, Fichte and Spinoza, Mind and Nature, Ascent and Descent, Subjective Freedom and Objective Union.
If the Ego camps still absolutize the noosphere, the Eco camps are still absolutizing the biosphere, utterly unaware that this contributes every bit as much as the Ego camps to the destruction of the biosphere itself.
The Ego and the Eco will never be integrated in this scheme, with the one absolutizing the noosphere and the other absolutizing the biosphere.
THE EGO AND THE Eco We earlier noted the altogether extraordinary paradox of the Enlightenment paradigm: the holism of nature produced the atomism of the self.
THE LEGACY OF THE IDEALISTS The Idealist movement was, in the West, the last great attempt to introduce true Ascent and, most important, to integrate it believably with true Descentthe Ego and the Eco both taken up, preserved and negated, honored and released, in all-encompassing Spirit.
Eco camp, on the other hand, was desperately reaching out for a larger and more variegated Life and Love, enriched with the communions of all imaginable varietyin nature and in other culturesand promoting diversity and egalitarianism with a passion.
For the Eco camp, self-isolated agency, however important, had sealed off the rich networks of unions and communions with nature and other cultures, and thus the more reenchanted the world, the better.
Schelling's brilliant synthesis and integration of the Ego and the Eco stand in sharp contrast to the plethora of today's approaches to the environment, which still typically pursue either the Egoic-rational calculative adventure ("reform environmentalism"), or fall into various forms of regressive Eco-Romantic "reechantment.
