Ghent: a city of people

Ghent’s foresight team are organising a conference for their 400 civil servants “to teach, facilitate and encourage long-term thinking (especially on technology)”

I’m presenting the opening keynote there this week and will be warning them to stay away from partnerships with surveillance-based Silicon Valley companies and to embrace decentralised, free/open, and interoperable democratic technology.

@aral Wishing you a good reception of your presentation today in Ghent !

@DynaMike Hey man, sorry I was just passing through (straight to the airport). Thank you for the kind offer – next time! :)
