Slides for the Octo IT University conference

July 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Here are the slides for the 2 sessions at the Octo IT University conference:

The conference was excellent. French philosopher Michel Serres gave the best talk, the first day. He started with an ethymological exegesis of Robin Hood, the one who bears the magistrate robe in the lawless zone, around the themes of internet and law that Larry Lessig develops in Code. I was surprised he did not mention Lessig at all.

Then he explained how computers create an evolutionist transformation of our cognitive capacities: as our memory is outsourced to computers, this frees us to develop new totipotent capabilities for our mind, such as innovating. A thought provoking session, narrated by a master pedagog.

Here are the slides.
