Social Technologies Summit

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Social Technologies Summit has prefigured new trends and is a  
place where important international discussions take place on the  
latest developments in social media and their implications for  
society. Discover the small sparks that unfold into new ways of  
seeing the world and critically explore the latest upgrade affecting  
today’s digital culture.

It will combine keynotes, critical debates, demos and experiences  
with open space and participatory sessions, in a fun and engaging event.

Computers have become social interfaces for sharing digital media and  
collaborating to build online communities and folksonomies. Social  
technologies create an extension of social space, and new ways for  
people to come together, meet and share in today's society.

The Social Technologies Summit will explore the new social spaces and  
the social implications of technologies for the many different kinds  
of people who make, use and are affected by them. In keeping with the  
Environment 2.0 theme of Futuresonic in 2009, this year it will also  
explore the interface between our digital footprint and our  
environmental footprint, and new thinking on sustainability in a  
globalised world.
