    Mark Boyle aka The Moneyless Man (born 8 May 1979) is a writer and activist best known for founding the online Freeconomy Community, and for living without money since November 2008.

It was also published under a non-commercial Creative Commons license. In 2003, he won the World Technology Award for Law for his work on the intellectual ecology of the public domain, and on the “Second Enclosure Movement” that threatens it.
