Living Economy Salon returns!
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Ed Keebler! (Plus two of our regulars…) This time we will have a deep dive talk with our special guest Ed Keebler, after we begin with two brief speeches from David Lightman and John Hanecek, allowing time for an inclusive group discussion following the talk.
ED KEEBLER: Topic: Migrating from the waste of techno-finance anarchy to the next wave of alternative value exchanges frameworks that support real placed based economic development. By learning the lessons, and evaluating the shortcomings, of the current crypto confidence game, we can create the financial democratization that crypto libertarians strive for.

DAVID LIGHTMAN: the founder of the Radical Decentralization group will speak briefly on “Decentralization”
JOHN HANECEK: “Thermodynamic economics, optimization and how to war-game an abstract system in a physical world ”
-I want to touch on the fact that solving a crypto hash uses time/space/energy and connect the abstract realm of math to the more tangible realm of physics to help the group make informed decisions about how to pick their systems based on how physically intensive the computations are. Moreover I need to help people understand there are some core themes of physical reality that can be exploited to centralize systems which claim to be distributed. I intend to instill a sense to others of how to look at computer networks as grounded in physical reality so they can use some natural reasoning to make inferences about how they might evolve.
