I encourage you to consider attending Activate this June in London. The OII is one partner in a conference entitled “Time to Change the World”. It will be held at Kings Place, London and the link is http://www.guardian.co.uk/activate/london
Activate is organized by the Guardian Newspaper, Guardian News and Media, and the Activate platform is ‘the Guardian’s gathering place for leaders of a new global network focused on harnessing and employing technological and social innovation for human betterment.’ These events are held around the world, and always feature top speakers. This year’s London Activate includes the founders, CEOs, and directors of some leading companies. It is not an academic conference, but an opportunity to hear from leaders in the field of information and communication technologies. Hope you can join.
