Currency used to mean green dollars and cents, but in the networked age, that term is evolving. Social currency, peer to peer market places, digital economies – when everyone is connected online, new forms of capital emerge based on relationships, interaction and trust. Dr. Mary Donohue, Jeff Howe, Val Fox, Jesse Hirsh, Paige Arnoff Fenn and others discuss how we create and perceive value in the internet era.
What impact will this technological evolution have on our lives, our relationships, our communities? Ryerson University, the Digital Media Zone, and the RTA School of Media have joined forces to find out with Rdigitalife, a new interview series that examines the intersection of technological innovation and the human experience. Produced and hosted by Ramona Pringle, Rdigitalife takes a deeper look at the myths and realities of life in the digital age, exploring the ethics, possibilities, and repercussions of our increasingly connected lives.
