CyborgCamp YVR 2013 is a conference about the future of the relationship between humans and technology. This year's conference is organized by Vancouver residents Nikolas Badminton and Kharis O'Connell.
Each year I mean to write a guide for those new to SXSW. I had a pretty rough time my first year, mostly because I didn't listen to the most frequent advice I recieved. Every year since I've been getting a bit better at handling the insanity. Last year I keynoted the conference, which was an experience in itself!
This guide is aimed at people new to SXSW. If this is your first time, welcome! This is a pretty overwhelmingly giant festival now! This will be my 5th year at SXSW. Looking forward to seeing you here!
I get at least 5 E-mails for coffee a day (coffee also being a stand-in for lunch, dinner, breakfast, coffee, drinks, Skype, speaking at a conference or chatting on the phone). I call this the Let's have coffee problem. An invidual is only one person, and one can't meet with everyone. This is an attempt at examining the core issues involved in this problem.
If you’re like me, you often find yourself browsing to other websites when you’re really supposed to be getting something done. Sometimes it takes hours to get back on track. For years I’ve been looking for a simple way to block myself from going to certain sites during work hours, or after work while I’m trying to get some writing done.
At long last, and after a series of starts and stops, I am pleased to announce the first edition of An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology! It's been lovingly illustrated by Maggie Nichols.
