Talking money

I’m going to be at GhengisCon next weekend speaking on a panel about digital economies. The topic is “A discussion of digital economies, WoW gold, EVE ISK, Secondlife Lindens, OM$ and bitcoins. How are these changing the way we deal with money and what are the implications?” If the future of money (however distant) is something that interests you then I encourage you to come along and join the fun! It’ll be a relatively interactive, relaxed affair with plenty of time for questions. It’s $10 for a day pass to the convention, which includes a bunch of other activities and panels. You can find out more about what else is on at the GhengisCon website. The details are:

Panel: Digital Economies

Hope to see you there!

New blog.

Q: What is the logical thing to do for someone arrogant enough to presume that his ideas are worth telling, boring enough to repeat the same ideas to all his long-suffering friends and acquaintances, naive enough to hope they might be original or interesting and idle enough to type it all out?

A: Start blogging.

I plan to use this site to talk about economics, finance and other light-hearted topics for which my outlets have been limited so far to scraps of paper in my bag, notepad.exe and those unfortunate enough to get within conversational range of me while I am doing either of the first two. That’s the idea anyway. We’ll see how it goes.
