  1. Tangible Interactions in Urban Spaces

    The transition from physical to virtual spaces means that there is less opportunity to physically interact in public spaces. Historically public spaces were used for celebration, today they are used for anonymous mobile calls. We would like to explore the ways in which the tangible aspect of physical space might be re-introduced into our virtual interactions through an exploration and discussion of - among other things - responsive architecture.

  2. SETI, Hawking, and Alien Contact

    A new warning from astrophysicist and global science guru Stephen Hawking: Do not talk to aliens.

    The brilliant Hawking is wheel-chair bound and speaks through a computer. But he’s thinking about the cosmos.

    With billions of galaxies, trillions of stars, the numbers tell him there’s life out there. The smartest forms could make it here. But we should not want that, says Hawking. Too much danger.

    Other scientists disagree. We’ll hear that debate, and talk to the man who heads Earth’s greeting committee for aliens.
