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.

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.
