We live with machines all around us. The fabric of our cities is made up of connected nodes that track weather, traffic, and commerce. These machines send us messages, tell us what to wear, show us entertainment, and monitor our behaviour. Our physical world is networked and made of code, and we usually don't even notice it. This is the programmable world, a world we now live in where everything is new media. We need new skills and perspectives to navigate this world and take charge of the infrastructure that we have built. Let's begin to discover how to program the world we want to see, or we're in danger of it programming us.
Matt Nish-Lapidus currently leads a design team at Normative in Toronto, Canada where he focuses on design practice development in a 21st century studio. He is also the Vice President of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), a global organization dedicated to the development of the interaction design practice.
The event will include a short presentation followed by an open discussion.
Please note the change in location - we are hosting this event at Critical Mass.
