On Saturday 9th March, I’ll give a talk as part of TEDx Warwick. This will be the second time I’ve spoken at Warwick, the first being at the Virtual Futures event in 2011. My laptop broke on the way there and I ended up giving a somewhat retro talk using one of the latest pieces of software out there. It looked like this.
I’ve not yet decided how I want to focus the talk this year, but I want to bring together bioethics, bioart, biopolitics, biotechnology, citizen science, and social media to consider how we need to advance a compassionate, yet aggressively innovative, assault on our knowledge economy. Alternatively, I might just use it to explore a term I’ve been developing recently along the lines of ‘viral cities’. This might work well since the theme is ‘building bridges’. I want to build them with DNA infused data. Now there’s a nice title.
Today’s talk at the British Library seemed to go down well.
