Cybersalon has run monthly events on Net culture since 1997 (apart from a brief interlude in 2007) and now we’re back – on this collection of pages you’ll find our amalgamated histories and summaries of events going back to early 2013.

To really look back into the archives, for events ranging from 2002 to 2007 including our Cybersonica music festivals, gaming events etc – take a look here.

Towards the end of 2014 we looked at the hopes and ambitions of the digital pioneers of the early Net, in The Net, Then & Now series.

Now, with technology racing apace, sensors saturating our cities and cybersecurity concerns making global news we look at the blurring of physical and virtual in Spring 2015’s Cybersalon Hyperhabitat Series.
