<nettime> update on the MoneyLab project


   Dear nettimers,

   here at the Institute of Network Cultures our network on internet
   revenue models for art (MoneyLab) is doing well. Last December we've
   hosted MoneyLab #3, in Amsterdam. The fourth event is scheduled for
   January 2018, this time in Cambridge (UK). We hope to announce
   something soon. MoneyLab is still into bitcoin, crypto-currencies,
   blockchain, but also critical crowdfunding research and larger debates
   such as cashless society and universal basic income. Late 2016 we will
   present the second INC MoneyLab Reader (the deadline for first drafts
   of essays is May 15, contact me if you're still interested to send
   something as the date for proposals has already past).

   If you're interested to join the network, please subscribe to the
   mailinglist. It is low traffic (2-3 posting a week):

   http://listcultures.org/mailman/listinfo/moneylab_listcultures.org.

   Let us know if you want to collaborate, have ideas about events and
   workshops, related debates and initiatives!

   Best, Geert
