Speaking at TEDxVienna

I've been invited to speak at TEDxVienna, on November 3, at the Odeon Theatre. The theme for this year is INSTANITY: everything now.

Derived from the words ‘instant’ and ‘insanity’, it symbolizes the spirit of our technologically minted times: everything now. In a single minute, we could cook a microwave meal, or snap and print a photo, gather all the necessary information at the press of a single button, and even control an avatar with our mere thoughts. Technological development has become instant, but could that drive us insane? How could a human brain whose developmental processes occur in phases understand and make the best use of technological achievements that have been exponentially growing at an amazingly fast rate? At our conference, we would like to spread the ideas of people who make this exponential development possible. At the same time, we would like to explore the boundaries that have been significantly shaken and pushed by the instant technological development; how technology re-shapes our human nature and how we learn to control for the risks that inevitably come with it.

When: 03. November 2012
Venue: Odeon Theatre
Adress: Taborstr. 10, 1020 Vienna

There is a list of impressive speakers, I look forward to meet them and have an interesting discussion about the future. I myself am working on a very different talk from the one I gave at ZDAY2012 Vancouver back in March. This (I hope) will surprise you.

If you can, come and see it. I promise it will be worth it.
