I'm not quite sure what to call this but I'd love to be part of a group of people jamming / talking shop with others who geek out on economics and are paying attention to trends showing up with names like: sharing economy, gift economy, peer-to-peer, social enterprise, regeneration, community land trust, etc.
I've got a friendship with Jenny Kassan, a well-known New Economy lawyer who specializes in community finance. (http://www.jennykassan.com/)
Partly I want to form this group to generate enthusiasm and support to hire Jenny to advise Spark in its legal formation as hybrid for-profit / non-profit entity. She's ready to work with us!
