What will happen in your session?

Participants will interact with a live decentralized market where they can trade “futures contracts” on the outcome of software bugs. Everyone will be able to join in, from the user’s own browser or one of our trading stations, and choose from a variety of activities.

  • Post new bug reports on a simple repository

  • “Invest” cryptocurrency in your prediction of a bug’s resolution

  • Contribute pull requests and comments to the repository

  • Watch your “market position,” and the market in general, change with bug status, and trades by other participants

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

Participants will increase their understanding of how market mechanisms can enable participants in a collaborative project to share information, and how bug futures compare to other organizational tools such as crowdfunding and crowdsourcing.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

  • 2 or more demo stations with browser

  • Large monitor for browser running market charts and ticker

This could all fit on a medium to large table. It would be good to have a stand for the monitor showing charts, to help attract participants who are exploring the “openness” space.

Time needed

All weekend, as an installation, exhibit or drop-in session

Mozilla is providing laptops. I understand that the show will provide a large monitor.

There is a work in progress repository here: with some bugs that we can trade on. It's a Jekyll repo so all you need is Markdown (or plain text) to contribute.

@malvikarao has added some issues for suggested topics.
