Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.52.33 PM

This is a not-for-profit, grass roots conference for people to come together, learn and discuss how technology is integrating into and changing our societies and culture.

Topics may include smart cities, wearables, the internet of things, social media, the quantified self, crypto-currencies, quantum computing, big data, grass roots tech movements, the maker movement, apps, mobile, robotics, cyborg anthropology, philosophy, bionics, surveillance, modern business dynamics, user experience, the impact today and the future of where our tech-led world is taking us.

Speakers include:
– Nora Young, Journalist and host of CBC Spark
– Amal Graafstra, CEO at DangerousThings
– Michael Fergusson, CEO at Ayogo
– Nikolas Badminton, Principal at DesignCultureMind
– Toby Barnes, Product Strategy Director at AKQA

We want you, your colleagues, and your friends to come with curiosity and open minds. We want them to listen, question and participate. The conference is not just the speakers and free beer at the end of the day. It’s a collection of thoughts, discussions, realizations, aha moments and memories formed into an idea of where we are headed in the world, both in the near (3 to 5 years) and far futures (10 yrs plus).

You’ll have a chance to participate and the end of the day format will be a number of sessions that you will be able to lead and be an active part of. Very exciting!
