Open Nature


Panel Discussion Live on the Internet

Open Nature: Kingdom of Piracy--KOP--presents ideas and examples from their Commons R&D project. KOP were asking: how do communities self-organize to define the rules of usage of the commons? and could this process of rule making and self-organisation be modelled as a game? The work of two guest speakers gives some possible answers to these questions. Simon Yuill presents spring alpha, a networked gaming platform which 'serves as a "sketch pad" for testing out ideas for alternative forms of social practice'. Ken Suzuki presents the new electronic currency PICSY which dynamically evolves in accordance with the users' value. After the presentations, KOP moderators and the audience will join the discussion about rule making in the commons.

Date: June 4, 2005 2:00pm-(JST) + 8 hours(GST); Venue: ICC 5F Lobby; Admission: free. With: Shu Lea Cheang, Armin Medosch, Simon Yuill, Ken Suzuki, and Yukiko Shikata
