In 2010, I approached via twitter and asked to come speak at SIBOS, “the world’s premiere financial services event.”
I teamed up with a creative studio in Berlin (KS12), and we made a video to present at the conference. We conducted skype-based interviews with participants in America, England, Sweden, Mexico, Germany and Thailand. The idea was to kickstart a larger conversation about the future of money and value, and the possibilities within a peer-to-peer economy.
Here’s the video:
Here are some posts documenting the project:

The question of ‘the future of money’ became an almost two year exploration. I showed the above video at a number of conferences around the world, wrote articles for CNN and Forbes about different modes of value exchange enabled by social technologies, and generally thought a bit too much about post-monetary economies.
Here are a number of other posts and discussions covering these topics:
