In the middle of October I gave a talk at Coded Cultures festival in Yokohama. The Yokohama event was actually a follow-up from the first installation of the festival that took place in Vienna a year before where I also participated and gave a talk.
The theme of my talk was based on a basic observation that as material and computing technology develops and DIY culture proliferates, we will think about the world around as inherently hackable and programmable. That includes everyday physical objects, society, living organisms and human body. Everything will be programmable, hackable and internet-ready, hence the term – Programmable Reality. The debate after the talk was very nice and some provocative ideas were suggested.
