The New Normal

The New Normal is a kind of “out of the box” track, but only to a certain extent, because we won’t go so far as talking about wine and cheese! Instead, we will try to understand what the future might be like. This track is not about practices, it’s more about opening our minds.

Turbulence: Thinking Flow Again

To think again about something we’ve become acquainted with, often we need to approach the subject from another view point.

What new thoughts might we find if we approach work systems not as a line, a sequence, but instead as an artificially constrained system with inherent self-organizing properties.

How can we grapple with flow in open systems that reconfigure themselves in response to ecosystemic change?

Nihilism and Technology
(

)
Access event
Description

Rather than engage in endless debates about whether technologies are making us better or worse, Nolen Gertz investigates what we think "better" and "worse" mean, and what role this thinking has played in the creation of our technological world. Using Nietzsche's philosophy of nihilism, Gertz explores the ways in which our values mediate how we design and use technologies. Examining our technological practices—practices ranging from Netflix and Chill to Fitbit and Move to Twitter and Rage—reveals how nihilism and technologies have become intertwined, creating a world of techno-hypnosis, data-driven activity, pleasure economics, herd networking, and orgies of clicking.
