Hacking The Future: The Technology Spore
Evolver.net and Bioneers present:
Hacking the Future: The Technology Spore
Wed, Sept. 21
With technology developing exponentially , the complex tools and toys of 21st century homo sapiens harness nearly divine-like powers that carry the potential to either preserve or destroy life on the planet. In the past few years, we have mapped the human genome, peered more than 14 billion years across the universe, built large-scale wind farms and solar panels, fashioned particle accelerators to study the smallest units of matter, and seen social networking systems spawn democratic revolutions in the Middle East. We’ve also witnessed unmanned drones bomb civilian villages in Pakistan, GMO foods contaminate US food supplies, nuclear reactors radiate the landscape of Fukushima, and offshore drilling poison 170 million gallons of Gulf water.
This month, in collaboration with Bioneers, 40+ Evolver communities will explore the benefits and pitfalls of modern technology. We will discuss how these developments shape and change our lives, how we can utilize these new tools safely and responsibly for the common good, and how to hold governments and corporations accountable for the technologies they develop. Spores may choose to cover topics ranging from hactkivism to nanotechnology, open source collaborations to bioengineering, alternative energy to vacuum field physics.
