Doors of Perception 7
Flow: the design challenge of pervasive computing
14,15,16 November 2002 Amsterdam

What happens to society when there are hundreds of microchips for every man, woman and child on the planet - most of them (the chips) talking to each other? What are the implications of a world filled with sensors and actuators? What does 'the world as spread sheet' look like? What will it mean it to be 'always on' in a real-time economy? Some of the world's most insightful designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs will address these questions at Doors of Perception 7 in Amsterdam on 14, 15 and 16 November 2002.The theme of the celebrated international gathering is flow: the design challenge of pervasive computing.
