 Y+ 30: The Future of Digital Communication

 Mon 7:00 PM



     200 Hudson Street
     New York, NY 10013

 Price $10.00 per person

 How people will communicate with machines (and vice versa) and with one
 another through machines.

 As technology continues to evolve and innovate at breakneck speeds,
 we've seen human behavior upended in a miraculously short span of time.
 Not only has our manner of communication changed, but the very notion of
 communication and the communicative abilities available to us are
 completely different. How people relate to one another professionally,
 socially, and artistically are different than even ten years ago, and
 will likely be much different thirty years from now. This panel will
 examine these ideas from multiple perspectives, including digital art,
 policy, social media, human- computer interfaces, and more. A diverse
 collection of technologists will speak on the subject, and there will be
 demonstrations of gadgets and interfaces from hack collective
 NYCResistor and an art installation piece from digital media institute

 Tickets for this event are $10 and will be available through the 92Y Box
 Office and Venmo shortly.

 NOTE: Twitter will be the platform of choice for receiving audience
 questions. If possible, please come with a Twitter-enabled device and
 use the #y30 hashtag for all relevant posts.
