‘When you grow up you have to accept responsibility’ says the father of the internet, Tim Berners-Lee.
As a fully fledged 30 year old, the internet has grown bigger and faster, however it hasn’t matured or evolved as much as it’s years would indicate. In one corner we often hear about how the internet is broken, with challenges around privacy breaches, data exploitation, threats to democracy, bad actors.
On the other hand we are hopeful about the possibilities which lie before us – the internet of everything, collaboration and community, increased affordability & availability of technology…
… likely a digital future we unable to comprehend.
The internet is a reflection of our humanity. It magnifies our ability to do good, to build communities, to create, to save lives; along with our dark side, the hate, fear, anger & frustrations of being human.
The 2020 Night Nomad Series will celebrate the internet and explore the relationship between our real selves and our online personas. We will examine the good, the bad and the ugly that has inadvertently altered the course of humanity.
