Living in a cloud: the future of free technology and our youth

Track this Session

As our digital world progresses, the sustainability of the Earth and its population will depend (and inevitably build) on those who have daily access to technology.

Nahum Mann explores the relationship between sociopolitical tensions around the world, and the rapid acceleration of computers and their integration into our environment. The presentation will look at some landmarks in our digital history, why we need to rethink copyright, and why his enterprise, YNation, is working to give youth fair access to technology and information.

Key Take Aways

  • how young people + exposure to technology = landmarks in future technology
  • look at how advanced youth are compared to older generations in digital landscape
  • why free means better business
  • how collaborative hubs can repair marginalized communities
  • what’s happening at 1527 Victoria Park?

Q: I’ll be coming to PodCamp Toronto by car, is there parking?

Parking is not provided on-site, though there are several paid lots and some street parking available in the immediate area. Heated underground parking is available directly across Gould Street underneath the Metro grocery store. To access it, come north from Dundas up Dalhousie Street (one way) and the entrance to the garage will be on your right just before you get to Gould.
