Creative Commons Salon:

Welcome to the Future of Money tour, in Oslo 6. may 2011!

Free culture and free pizza to the people!


"The Future of Money" is the title of a telepresently produced
Creative Commons licensed short film (07:32), in which young
founders are interviewed about their projects and their view of
money -- with an emphasis on social entrepreneurship and "hacking
the money system" (by creating and using free and open

What are young adults thinking about money and value? How can we
create new systems of wealth generation and abundance? What does
the future hold for banks and other financial institutions in the
wake of massive peer to peer exchange?
"The Future of Money" begins a conversation on these topics and
invites your participation.
See the short film here:


The Future of Money tour is initiated by the Cloudberry Project, a
collaboration of the Nordic Creative Commons organizations.
( http://cloudberry.cc/ )

The idea is to have a Creative Commons Salon spanning as many
countries as possible in a week, as Gabriel Shalom from
KS12/Emergence Collective (film maker, entrepreneur from the US)
and Jay Cousins (entrepreneur in social technology, human
interaction, technology trends, product hacking, open everything,
disrupting technologies and systems; from the UK) -- they are both
living in Berlin -- travel to all the Nordic countries and then
some, joining forces with local speakers in each country.

(Here is a little trailer for the whole tour with all countries:
