Abstract:

  • The “creative economy” is an evolving concept, capturing the effects of intellectual capital as it interfaces with the arts, culture, business and technology. The speakers on this featured panel explore the topic through diverse perspectives. OurGoods.org co-founder Caroline Woolard talks about the problems and possibilities of non-monetary exchange while Denis Roio, a.k.a. Jaromil, a software developer, artist and activist illustrates the technical and political aspects connected to Bitcoin, an experimental digital currency that uses peer-to-peer technology to bypass central authority. Ted Howard, listed as one of “25 visionaries who are changing your world” in the Utne Reader, will discuss his role in the Evergreen Cooperatives of Cleveland, Ohio, an innovative model of community wealth building and sustainability. OurGoods.org
