First we had the World Wide Web, a web of links between documents. Then we had the Social Web, a social network of relationships between people. 21.co believes that the third web may be the Machine-Payable Web, a network of payments between machines.

In this public lecture and hackathon, Balaji Srinivasan, CEO of 21 and Board Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, will discuss the open source 21 software package, which makes it easy to build applications that perform machine-to-machine bitcoin micropayments over HTTP . The talk will show how to use this software to build things like bitcoin-aware intelligent agents and APIs that implement autonomous surge pricing.

We ask that audience members bring their laptops to code along with the speaker for a chance to win prizes!
