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 Thanks! Went really well. More info soon ;)
@aral Will we be able to meet in Brussels ?
@aral I'll buy you a Belgian beer 😎
@DynaMike Hey man, sorry I was just passing through (straight to the airport). Thank you for the kind offer – next time! :)
