You guys have won. Software is eating the world. You are the emperors and are cutting through and reinventing industries one by one. Let's think what comes next.

A culture is the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that describes a group. Our era is increasingly characterized by an emergent “software culture".
Culture hacking is itself a distinct kind of culture engineering. Good culture hacking will tend to protect personal freedom and extend openness. As our many cultures become hacked we will grow enormously in effectiveness, and ambition.

Alexander Bard is one of the world's leading internet social theorists and the author of "The Futurica Trilogy" together with Jan Söderqvist. In this speech he will elaborate on the fact that out of all the codes and other digital information we stuff our machines with, something much more profound, something sentient, is emerging. The internet controls us, and possesses opur imagination and worldview, rather than the other way round.
Having made a habit of lecturing dressed in haute couture shorts and an impressive fin de siècle beard, scribbling his notes on huge whiteboards rather than parading just another predictable power-point presentation, the larger-than-life Alexander Bard's simultaneously entertaining and earth-shattering lectures have consistently topped the ratings at major business and management conferences around the world. And as any good speaker does, Bard takes pride in practicing the message he preaches.

Jonas Birgersson will share some experiences from his adventures in IT/Telecom & more importantly gaming.

Hojun Song is a tech-obsessed installation artist who is trying to advance both art and usable technology. In a fun keynote Hojun will share his rebellious experience from his most recent project: building and launching a satellite.
