CC Open Collective Skype Chat


The CC Open Collective is an online forum (skype chat) for complementary currency practitioners, researchers and advocates.   It is about 6 years old, and currently includes 120 people from around the world.  Members share their knowledge, experiments and inquiries about complementary currencies, and draw one another’s attention to new developments in the field.  As of August 2010, the chat generated about 700 pages of Microsoft Word notes, questions, and links.  This learning community is open to anyone who can contribute to the development of the field of complementary currencies.


The forum is moderated.   If you would like to join, please contact Les Squires (skype name: LSquiresSkype) and briefly explain why you would like to participate.  You will be invited into the chat and asked to introduce yourself.  Newcomers will be coached as to the appropriateness of their interactions.  Chatty talk is best communicated outside the group.   The group has recently spun off a chat for programmers, and will consider additional discussions for other highly specialized topics.
