FutureEverything Summit - Speakers announced

future-everything2010On 21 - 24 March 2013, FutureEverything presents the Summit of Ideas & Digital Invention - a four day event that is centred around a two day conference and a programme of live music and contemporary art events. The Summit will host the annual FutureEverything conference, which is focussing on three main themes we believe will influence the culture and business of digital societies in the future: Creative Code, Future Cities and The Data Society.
