How will we continue to generate, record and share ideas in the analog-digital continuum?
Celebrating 150 years of the Politecnico di Milano
Triennale di Milano | 4th December 2013 | 14:30 – 18:30
Some of today's greatest creative thinkers will discuss the generation, recording and sharing of ideas in years to come as analog meets digital, with leaders from the worlds of calligraphy, blogging and academia coming together to answer important questions relating to the processes, methods and mediums of the future.
The way we think and work has changed dramatically in recent years. The choice of PC at work or mac at home, keyboard versus pen or pencil, tweets, post-it notes, hard drives and paper notebooks has opened up new possibilities as we form different habits.
Never before have we had so many options when needing to jot down an idea. And never before has idea generation been as vital as it is now in our advanced industrial societies. How do we deal with all these various platforms? Does our brain respond differently to each tool? What is the right mix of digital and paper, visuals and texts? And are we heading towards a new era where analog and digital tools will merge and converge?
Each thought leader will present a 10 minute provocation, which will be followed by a roundtable discussion and a light aperitivo to close.
Organized by Politecnico di Milano in collaboration with Moleskine, celebrating 150 years of the Politecnico.
