Alternative currencies at Limehouse 2005

By | November 12, 2008

One in a series of World Summits on Free Information Infrastructures (WSFII) took place 1-3 October 2005 at Limehouse Town Hall in London. A programme of talks, demonstrations and discussion on free networks, alternative currencies, civic information, infra-red networks, open geodata and mapping, was preceded by a week of workshop ‘streams’ including a book writing project : ‘Wireless for Development’.

Keith Hart spoke about the political possibilities of alternative currencies. In three Youtube segments, he discusses his online project the Memory Bank and the relationship between intellectual property, the information age and the emergence of new monetary systems (and value).

Filmed and edited by Ricardo Leizaola.
