Jamie Joyce is a Non-Profit Executive, Blockchain Enthusiast, and Advocate for Scholarly Endeavors based in Orlando, FL. She is the Founder of the blockchain project The Internet Government which aims to become a more efficient way to discuss policy proposals.
Early in her career, Joyce was on the board of Hackerspace, started a non-profit that led "hug" campaigns, and taughts kids how to program NFC tags through her project LeadLets Kits.
Joyce joined IDEAS For Us, an NGO accredited by the United Nations that develops and scales sustainability solutions, in 2015 as a consultant and strategist that coordinates international fundraising campaigns. In 2017, she was promoted to Chief Operating Officer while still being Chairwoman of the Solutions Fund for the organization. Joyce is leaving IDEAS in April 2018 to pursue blockchain projects full-time.
Joyce is the Founder of two organizations, The Society Library and The Internet Government. Inspired by Benjamin Franklin's Junto Club, The Society Library's mission is to archive and contextualize humanity's ideas, ideologies, and world-views in sincere inquiry after truth, understanding, and education. The organization's whitepaper is pending. The Internet Government plans to utilizing blockchain technology to create a meritocracy that creates "a system of representation of perspectives rather than people." The Internet Government intends to come to conclusions through mathematical thresholds between contrary ideas that indicate a "grey area" inbetween them, allowing the parties involved to spot compromises between the opposing arguments.
An artist, Joyce is a three-time honorarium Burning Man participant and grant/award-winning artist that constructs her art using waste. She calls her work “stuff-sculpting” or “waste painting.”
