The simple goal of CT1 is to begin to define itself.
The cloud is a very timely metaphor. It hovers over all our heads in the form of a ubiquitous, remote, networked computational and communication model. It also captures the spirit of the movie and the book Cloud Atlas (our dear and beloved benefactor). The cloud is an unbounded entry point for universal access where everyone and everything becomes available to everything and everyone. The boundless curvature of the cloud is its greatest asset. The cloud is amorphous and non-linear. It does not have a fixed address. It is shapeless and ever-changing.
And so this timely metaphor appeals both to the liberal value of open-ness as well as the transformational power of something that is constantly being radically re-defined. It also suggests a different path towards the gates of Saint Peter and the atmospheric image of the everafter. One that is less encased in the binding inconography of the past but instead opens doors to the infinite future.
Join us for an evening of discussion with 6 stimulating speakers on this theme: David Mitchell (author of the Cloud Atlas), Ariel (InterAxon), Kelly Rose (Panda Robotics), Christopher Langan (The Outliers), Jay Shaw (Theory of Thought) and Wai Tsang (Fractal Brain Theory).
The event will broadcast on Canadian Television in 2013 as well as transmitted free on the infinite logic you tube channel starting in November 2012.
The toronto event includes a unique dinner from executive chef Ren at Spoke Club. A multi-course meal prepared in the culinary genre: "Fractal Molecular Gastronomy."
