This came via an email and looks interesting – and in the absence of a website to link to, I copy it below.
London Festival of Architecture Debate
Thursday 24th June 2010 at the Apple Store, Regent Street in association with Wired Magazine and chaired by Ben Hammersley editor of Wired UK.
This debate will challenge notions of the ‘data-city’: are pervasive digitial devices and open data changing the way we interact with the city? Will access to data speed up the divide between affluent and poorer areas? Are we becoming ‘data dandys’- ‘wrapped in the finest facts and the most senseless gadgets’?
Tickets are free, but must be reserved, email: [email protected]
Start time not confirmed – but their last such debate started at 6:30pm and lasted a couple of hours.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
