LYNN FOSTER (Mikorizal Software)
Software for the next economy
Lynn grew up as the oldest child of two economics professors, graduated from Carleton College in the U.S. in 1973, and has lived in the midwest U.S. since then. Her day job for three decades was software consulting in different industries, including manufacturing, railroads, gas utilities, food, health care, accounting, and others. She focused on business analysis, modeling, development methodologies, project management, coding, and testing. Lynn has retired from her day job, and is very happy to have more time to directly pursue helping to make change in the world, currently working with Mikorizal.org to develop software for P2P and other next-economy networks. Other current interests include sustainable building and wild foraging for food and medicine.
The next economy must be driven by human and ecological needs rather than profit. And it will be networked. Mikorizal Software is developing software for transitioning to the next economy. Not this economy, the next economy. The core development team lives among the woods and small farms of rural southwest Wisconsin, USA. The don't have much cell phone coverage, but they do have very good internet! They are helped by a few others located around the world.
