Speaking at the Club of Amsterdam

Posted: September 25th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Talks | Tags: , , , , , , | 5 Comments »

For an upcoming presentation at the Club of Amsterdam on the Future of Hacking, Alper will be presenting on an intersection of APIs, public information and game design titled: “Civic duty in a hyper-connected world”


The Internet of Things is an abstract term for something that is quickly becoming real. The world is being filled with sensors and actuators, all of which are linked into systems and being fed back to us with real and virtual displays. This is changing the fabric of society and the definition of what society is. It is our responsibility as citizens of this hyper-connected world to hack our environments to work better however we can.

Hope to see you there and have a lively discussion on this topic.
