In the next month in Sydney there will be a lot of attention on connectivity.
First there is the XMediaLab conference and the accompanying workshops to be held at the Sydney Opera House. Then there is a much smaller event to be held at the Sydney Business School – Hyperconnected.
Both of them are working to provide a glimpse into the future of the impact of technology on media, and the impact of media on society. Hyperconnected is different in that its focus is on the importance of geography on culture, and how a true high speed broadband digital artery between the countries in the same time zones as Sydney will work together to create media. And for that media to have significant societal impact locally and then globally. Should be provocative and interesting!
