June 4: Open Discussion "Unconference" on Mutual Credit, Alt Currencies, & Accounting Models
Please join me (also tagging @Jakub Lanc here) for an open discussion on mutual credit, alternative currencies, different accounting models, and value exchange generally. In @Oli SB's words (plucked from the thread of my last webinar proposal ):
It was really interesting how the conversation at the end of the last webinar moved on to money and specifically mutual credit ... which seems like something lots of people are interested in discussing... So I am penciling in the 4th June (the last webinar session before the main OPEN 2020 event on 11th and 12th June - full plan still TBC) as a slot for everyone who is interested in this topic to come together and discuss ...
There's heavy interest in this topic and I think it's worth making space for an open discussion. Maybe it will help us better focus the sessions at the main event.
Some prompts we can talk about:
What types of money or accounting models are compatible? What types are incompatible? Why?
What are your hands-on experiences using technology for alternative currencies? What do you need that's not getting built? (Or, what have you seen being built that you don't need?)
How does your work fit into the bigger picture? How do we put it in context, considering what others in this community are working on?
"I am working on ____. What are the barriers that prevent you from joining me/using my product?"
On the "alt currency" world in general: Is this a movement? Where is it going? How can we grow? Do we need to communicate better, provide better tech, find common ground in different philosophies...?
Feel free to add additional discussion prompts in this thread.
