From Wall Street Journal's CIO Journal:
History can be a useful guide to the future, especially when trying to predict the impact of disruptive changes on human organizations and cultures. I was reminded of this dictum when recently attending a very interesting workshop at the University of California, Irvine - Payment Technologies: Past Present and Future. The workshop was sponsored by the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing and hosted by the Institute for Money, Technology and Financial Inclusion (IMTFI). IMTFI was established in 2008 “to support research on money and technology among the world's poorest people...[and] to create a community of practice and inquiry into the everyday uses and meanings of money, as well as the technological infrastructures being developed as carriers of mainstream and alternative currencies worldwide.” It is part of UC Irvine’s School of Social Sciences.
