Brooklyn Torch Open Call Line

Hello Clusterflockers!

I’ve been working hard at founding the Brooklyn Torch, a local paper currency project based in Brooklyn, NY. We’ve had a few local events and we have met some challenges and opportunities with a degree of success and mixed-success (always forward, never straight!) We are working on a mission statement and future goals and overall ideals. I’d love to hear what you guys might want to know about the project. I.e., what the hell are you talking about? Or, what is the internal rate return for investing in a project like this? Or, what does the bill look like? You know, anything. As I draft and come up with language on what we are, I will post semi-non-regularly here and at our project site. Just letting you know, there’s more on the way. For now, our lines are open. Call up and ask!

    Okay, what does local currency mean? How do you use it? Is this an art project, a social project, an economic project? Are you some sort of communist?

    Oh, I’m kind of fascinated with these — is this like BerkShares?
