Here's the presentation I'll be giving at the 'Media fandom and/as labor' panel at Console-Ing Passions in Boston, which takes place at 15h30 today (in about four hours). The hashtag for the conference is #CP2012 in case you want to follow along; the sessions aren't streamed, but people are livetweeting quite a bit.

I introduce the Japanese dojinshi market as a fanwork exchange system involving money that actually works (to a certain extent), and use Lawrence Lessig's concept of the hybrid economy that links gift and commercial economies to explain why the presence of money in this particular fannish gift economy isn't seen as problematic by fans or companies.

Hopefully the presentation makes some sense without the talk that goes with it, but I'll be expanding it with some more details and examples later today. I have only twenty minutes to chat at the panel, and I don't want to confuse the audience or myself with extras on the screen.

ETA: Done! The panel went great. Many thanks to my co-panelists Karen Hellekson and Mel Stanfill. More tomorrow, brain now relaxing.
