HUBweek moments

HUBweek moments

HUBweek 2015 is a wrap. 46,000 people took part in this weeklong celebration of the work and impact at the intersection of art, science, and technology in Greater Boston. The festival was co-founded by Harvard, MIT, MGH, and the Boston Globe, and benefited from creative collaborators from dozens of institutions across the region.

A few of my favorite moments:

“Who you are; who parents think you are; who your computer thinks you are can be three totally separate people.”

Alexis Wilkinson on the role of technology in our lives at Fenway Forum [video]

“We live in the Golden Age of surveillance, where law can subvert technology and technology can subvert law … the most intimate surveillance device I have is my cell phone.”

Bruce Schneier, presenting on The Future of Privacy and Security in a Big Data World

“Metadata isn’t neutral.”

Andromeda Yelton, sharing big ideas and practical truths in Libraries: The Next Generation [liveblog by David Weinberger] [video]

“Narrative of podcast can be as technology, business, or the art form – and the most interesting is the art form.”

Benjamen Walker, in State of the Podcast 2015 [video]
