Digital Money 29th, 30th

Digital Money is coming up, 29th and 30th March. Always good for a visit.

The goal of the Forum is to encourage discussion and debate around the real issues at the heart of electronic identity [sic - must be digital money] in all its forms. In addition to this Forum, every autumn we organise the annual Digital Identity Forum (see the web site at for more details), the sister event to the Digital Money Forum.

There are several great things about the Hyperion conferences. Firstly, Dave and the team work hard to keep the commercial presentations down to a minimum. Next, he casts out looking for up and coming trends including the wild and woolly social experiments. Lastly, there's usually a great book giveaway!

Talks I'd travel some distance for, if I could:

Replacing Cash with Mobile Phones
Susie Lonie, Vodafone
A case study on the African M-PESA scheme

Currency for Kids
Jonathan Attwood, Swap-it-Shop UK
The UK's "eBay for kids"

Cross-Border Funds Transfer before the Internet - The ransom of King Richard
David Boyle, Author of "Blondel's Song"

I wish I had the time and the money...
Next time, hopefully, I shall have both.

Money, money every where but not a buck to spend. All the suggestions and directions money could take does not reverse the basic premise the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Jimbo: without money, it would be much worse. Actually, it WAS worse before money.
Also note that the poor are getting richer as well. A bit more optimism, please!
