“What do we mean by “the digital”? Anything created on a computer? Anything on a screen? Made out of code? Active? Networked? The speakers will address this “binary” approach where things are digital or analogue, physical or virtual, real or something else, visible or invisible… They focus rather on the effect of things rather than their nature, the experience we have with them, and the work that they do in the world.”

And some of this example sounds ‘webby’, but Google is the first to advance interaction models that are not remotely webby (such as Now).”
