I mentioned the Quantum To Cosmos Festival some time ago when it was first announced. I’m lucky enough to have secured tickets to a few events and I’m looking forward to taking them in.
More exciting for me is the news that Primal Fusion is sponsoring one of the events. Cory Doctorow will be speaking on Thursday October 22 at 4:00pm on the subject Copyright versus Universal Access to All Human Knowledge and Groups Without Cost: the state of play in the global copyfight.
We’re so excited at Primal Fusion, in fact, that our founder Peter Sweeney’s most recent blog post, Want to Build a Better Internet? Stop Searching for Solutions, takes a cue from an article that Doctorow wrote earlier in the summer. Have a look, and then let Pete know what you think. Is he on to something big? Is he way off-base? Is he somewhere else?
If you’re not able to get to Doctorow’s festival presentation in person, keep in mind that Q2C will be streaming events live over the Internet. Check it out and set aside some time to drink from the metaphorical cup of learning offered by Quantum to Cosmos.
