Presentation Title:

  • Accelerating Networks, Broken Networks




  • Rick Prelinger, keynote speaker for the Power: Gridlocked theme, is an archivist, writer, filmmaker and outsider librarian. He speaks about our dependency on the networks that connect us. He says “The networks offering power, water, mobility, commodities and communication have turned into a drunken spiderweb full of broken connections. All of us depend on networks that are growing unreliable. Identifying the utopian kernel that once resonated in our minds as these networks accelerated, is a starting place for examining nodes in emergent networks and our connectivity.”
