This session was recorded at the Nine Worlds Geekfest in London. The panel was supported by The Wellcome Trust.
Technology is advancing at a huge rate and with it are the moral and social questions it brings. Is Cyberpunk culture's immune response to this advancement, engulfing the issues within stories, films and games to flag these issues in advance or has it become a self-fulfilling prophecy with the inevitable end where we'll be reading a DRM-locked copy Neuromancer in Google Glass as the irony passes us by. Join us and some of the top creators in this field to talk, cyber, punk, tech, specs and crashes together.
