Conference and festival in Dublin next month called Openhere 
www.openhere.data.ie <http://www.openhere.data.ie> with lots of free 
events and workshops on cyptocurrencies, alternative currencies and 
economic models

​*Open*here *14.11-16.11 2014*

cryptocurrencies, digital sharing, 3D printed goods – just some of the 
disruptive online practices and technologies that are transforming and 
reshaping our economy. These innovative technologies have impacted the 
market, enabling new business models, evolving market conditions and 
transforming economic and social landscapes. However, the 
commodification and commercial adoption of these disruptive technologies 
has also raised concerns and questions in terms of access, control and 
sustainability. How can we develop these practices to not only support a 
digital commons, but also to support more equitable and sustainable worlds?

*Open*here is a 3-day international festival and conference where online 
practices such as sharing, peer-production and open source meet real 
world material economies. The program brings together researchers, 
artists, engineers and activists to critically engage alternative 
economic models and digital currencies, open source hardware and 
ecology, and new forms of peer production and sharing happening at the 
intersection of digital and real world spaces. Sessions include talks, 
panel discussions, workshops and screenings.

*Participants include:*Benjamin Tincq, Brett Scott, Cathal Garvey, 
Chelsea Rustrum, Denisa Kera, Duncan McCann, Eli Gothill, Gawin Dapper, 
Geraldine Juárez, Graham Barnes Kevin Flanagan, Lana Swartz, Linda 
Doyle, Lúí Smyth, Nigel Dodd, Nora O’ Murchú, Peter Hanappe, Rachel
