On the first Friday of September every year, Brighton plays host to a fantastic one-day conference called dConstruct.
You’ll hear from artists, writers, hackers and coders about surveillance, connected devices, big data, and just about everything the network touches. This isn’t your typical technology conference—it’s about the meeting of technology, culture, and society. Don’t worry: it isn’t as pretentious as that makes it sound—it’s a lot of fun. It’s entertaining for nerds of all ages.
Frankly, it’s hard to describe dConstruct—you kind of have to be there. But if you haven’t been to a dConstruct before, you can listen to audio recordings from all the previous events in the dConstruct archive. Have a listen to the magificent talks from Adam Buxton, Sarah Angliss, and Dan Williams at last year’s event.
