Peer to beer networking

24 October 2006


This is it, the new website is here, registrations are open, speakers are in.

Join us next February to hear talks about the Web (Stephanie Hannon, Pierre Chappaz, Sampo Karjalainen of Habbo Hotel, Lee Bryant, Colin Henderson or Daniel Kaplan), ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things (Adam Greenfield, Anne Galloway, Daniela Cerqui, Julian Bleecker, Frédéric Kaplan), mobile technologies (Nathan Eagle, Jan Chipchase), interactive arts and design (Jan-Christoph Zoels, Régine Débatty, Christophe Guignard), entrepreneurship (Bernino Lind), Fair Economy (Paola Ghillani), Ethics (Beth Krasna), and many more topics like education, religion, the digital divide or technological overload.

The program is not yet complete - we are still looking for 8-10 speakers, and waiting for the answer of the likes of Doc Searls and Vinton Cerf (help welcome if you know some of these guys) - so don’t forget to check regularly the speakers list.

This year, the conference will also be enhanced by a special event that will be a bridge between creativity and pragmatism, gathering individuals of various backgrounds to work freely on a specific topic: “Digital fragility“. Several interactive artifacts will be built on site, turning LIFT into a both intellectual and physical experience.

If you register before December 31, 2006 you get an early bird price of only 295CHF (around 185 euros), 195CHF for students. That will be enough to get you access to 30+ presentations, two warm lunches, pre-conference drinks, post-conference party, countless amazing ideas and people!
