What Digital Future?
Thursday, 7 February 2013 from 11:00 to 17:00 (GMT)
Windsor Eton, United Kingdom

A day of discussion and workshops.

The last 30 years has seen an increase in our dependence on digital
networks, altering how we work, how we spend our leisure time, how we
consume and how we construct our relationships. Digital technology is
often heralded as the harbinger of progressive change but what are the
social, environmental and personal costs of a digital future? What
environmental constraints exist that could  limit the expansion of
digital technologies?  Can the internet really be decoupled from
consumerism?What are the psycho/social implications of the internet?

You are invited to explore these questions with us, alongside academics
and other interested parties at our day long free symposium ‘What
Digital Futures’.
