Cybersalon is a think tank on digital futures, we’ve been running monthly events on digital arts and culture since 1997. Our events attract a wide range of people, entrepreneurs, technologists, hackers, activists, government officials, business leaders, academics, artists, creatives and designers.
Cybersalon members produce research and insights on a range of topics, from big data, quantified self to cyborgs, focusing on the digital revolution.
We host a series of monthly events, every last Tuesday of every month from 7pm – 10pm.
Spring 2015 – The New Hyperhabitat Series
From January 2015 through to June, we’re organising a range of events investigating the changing nature of our lived environments increasingly augmented by ubiquitous computing and increasing blurring between the physical and virtual, and all manner of concerns and controversies that follow, from control and security implications to what it might mean for our struggling democratic systems…
And more to be confirmed!
Our Previous Series: The Net – Then & Now
When the Internet launched in the 1990s the ideas, hopes and ambitions of the early users were different to those of today. Or were they?
In this series we look at understanding the important links in thinking between our cyber utopian dreams and today’s Internet realities. It’s a cliche but true- to understand the future you have to understand the past!
For more of our events over the past months and years see our Previous Events listings.
Audio recordings, tweet timeline and transcript of the discussion will be available and on request after each event.
In 1997 Cybersalon came out of the Hypermedia Research Centre at the University of Westminster and Cyberia, the first global cybercafes. We began as a ‘community of interest’, holding discussion events in pubs, as we got larger we moved to the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and the Science Museum. We also gave birth to a successful electronic music festival, Cybersonica.
