Follow The Money

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, you may want to attend the lecture I will be throwing at the Follow the Money – The database as a narrative form conference this Thursday 14-01-2010 at The Balie in Amsterdam.

I promised to talk about money as an ancient form of virtual reality and look at various payment media in which money has appeared – from stock cattle to ancient Chinese spade money and African mobile calling credit to virtual cash in Second Life and eco-money in South America. Rest a sure that the whole thing will be draped in Next Nature thinking.

Yes, the event will be streamed.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
