NTT[ICC]  Live on the Internet

KOP present ideas and examples from their Commons R&D project
http://kop.kein.org/commons/tales/ . 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 <a href="http://www.spring- alpha.org/">"spring alpha"</a>, 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 <a href="http://www.picsy.org">"PICSY"</a> 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(Sat.), 2005 2:00pm-(JST) +8hours(GST)
