[Nettime-nl] reminder: moneylab event deze week in amsterdam

Beste nettime-nl,

deze vrijdag en zaterdag vindt in het voormalige (WG terrein) Smart Project Space gebouw (nu omgedoopt in Lab 111) het INC event over internet en verdienmodellen plaats, MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives. 

MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives – International Conference & Alternatives Bazaar
21-22 March 2014
 {AT}  Lab 111 (Arie Biemondstraat 111, Amsterdam).

Onderwerpen: Bitcoin | Crowdfunding | Mobile Money | Digital Currencies | Local Currencies | Alternative Banking Systems | Economic Crisis & Activism | Money and Art

Sprekers: Saskia Sassen, Bill Maurer, Franco Berardi, Tiziana Terranova, Eduard de Jong, Aaron Koenig, Brian Holmes, Matthew Slater, Lana Swartz and many more.

What is the future of internet-based currencies like Bitcoin? Can revenue models such as crowdfunding function only as additional sources of income? What lessons are to be learned from mobile money payment systems in Africa? Is it possible to imagine a sustainable network-economy? How should we understand the politics and governance of alternative digital-economic forms? And, what can be done now?

The conference brings bringing together top international speakers - researchers, activists, artists, designers and programmers - to critically probe alternative economic models, payment systems, revenue models and currencies against the backdrop of the ongoing global economic stagnation.

The conference is complemented by the MoneyLab Alternatives Bazaar. The Bazaar presents organizations and initiatives directly involved with alternative revenue models and currencies such as Qoin, Noppes, STRO, Next Nature & Eco Currency, Timebank CC, and a Bitcoin ATM. The Alternatives Bazaar provides a platform to network, exchange ideas and get involved and is open throughout the 22nd of March.

Further activities at the event include video projections, art performances, a hackathon and workshops. For more information, tickets and updates on the program: http://www.networkcultures.org/moneylab

Tickets are € 30,- (regular) and € 15,- (student discount) per day. Free for HvA students and staff.
