This is a free to attend afternoon conference examining the opportunities presented by the concept of digital public space, where anyone, anywhere, anytime on any device will be able to access, explore and create with digitised cultural content. This is presented in conjunction with Futureeverything and Manchester Digital Developement Agency
Copyright & Piracy in the Digital Age - Are we all criminals?
A subject which is close to many of our hearts and is a real highlight from the Writing on the Wall Festival, the issues of Copyright and Piracy are now ever present in todays society as most of the population own, have listened to or watched a pirated version of a TV programme, Movie or album. You can't use youtube without possibily violating someone elses copyright so we have all become criminals for mere consumption of material... well that can't be right. A proposed Government bill on Digital Copyright only saw the light of day for a week before being thrown into the long grass of politics.
This event can only help us to inderstand the issues behind this subject area so come along on the 3rd May.
This looks so good I booked myself on to it and should be as it's a subject I am really interested in but would never know about how to find out more about it - so this is a perfect opportunity. The digital designer’s playbook is taking place on 30th March 2012 @ 1.00pm and is FREE to attend and only a couple of hours long.
So what is it then I hear you ask?
We finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.
"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong.
YOUR INVITED SO READ ON
Do you have some data to share? Are you worried about the cloud? Do you know where your data is stored? Come and take part in a DropDay: an AND festival datasharing session using artist Aram Bartholl's DeadDrops 'peer to peer (ish) offline sharing system'
A simple play on words has you all so interested but I'm simply cutting down words so I have more time to tell you about Maker Night, Jelly Liverpool and Ignite Liverpool all in one article. (yes I do call this an article.)
TEdx is back - it was last here in 2009 but it is back this November.
If you have never been then think Ignite style talks but longer and more technology orientated usually.
