AI Alanna Irving Public Seen by 186

We are posting a series of Loomio discussions about sessions and talks coming up at the conference, so participants can have a chance to discuss the topics, ask questions, and interact with the presenters.

Keynote: How Has the World Changed?

Sascha will open the conference giving a broad swepping talk showing how "Open" really changes everything! He will share how we're at a critical juncture that could lead to a more liberatory technological ecosystem, but that we're currently on a far darker path, heading into more of a "Digital Feudalism" (as exemplified by ever increasing lockdown of consumer services, applications, devices, and platforms).

Sascha Meinrath has been described as a “community Internet pioneer” and an “entrepreneurial visionary.” He is Director of X-Lab, focusing on thought-provoking, bold tech policy interventions. He also founded the Open Technology Institute and was named to the “TIME Tech 40” in 2013 as one of the most influential figures in technology.
