Eric Harris-Braun designs and builds software infrastructure for the post monetary economy. He is a co-founder of the MetaCurrency project. He works closely with TheTransitioner, a research and development group dedicated to understanding and developing new forms of collective intelligence, where he is the lead developer of the Flowplace.
Eric serves on the board of the New Economics Institute. He is the co-founder of Glass Bead Software, a provider of peer-to-peer networking applications, and of Harris-Braun Enterprises, a free-lance software development shop, which has created, among other things, complex data-collection web-sites for the health-care industry, an Android application for catch-monitoring for the fishing industry, and which built and operates the Online Writers Workshop. In 1994, he published the Internet Directory, with Fawcett Columbine which sold over 100,000 copies, and which went on to a second edition in 1996 before thankfully being made obsolete by Google. Eric received a B.A. in Computer Science from Yale University.
Currently he lives in a straw-bale house in rural New York where he is part of a Quaker Intentional community, plays with his two kids, tends a garden and occasionally feeds the sheep and chickens.
