all about the geekyoto global briefing series of events.

geekyoto 2009 – August 15th Conway Hall

Just a note, though it has been quiet at gk HQ in fact we have been rather busy.

Just this last weekend, we ran the first Africa Gathering, here in London as the launch of the geekyoto global briefings. It was an amazing day and we will have more reports here and over at the AG website.

We are also planning some more events but I did want to say that the next geekyoto conference is provisionally booked for August 15th, back at Conway Hall.

The theme this year is:

‘What Is The Exact Nature of The Catastrophe?’

Yes, there will be more information soon and tickets released.

In our last post we announced our next project to work with Edward Scotcher on developing a day to continue the conversation that was started with his talk at geekyoto ’08.

We hope that beyond this we will be able to bring the world to you in an interesting way and also instill the geekyoto idea in many other parts of the world.

What we would be interested in hearing though is what parts of the world do you want to hear about, we have our ideas of where we would like to explore but what would interest you.

Let us know in the comments if you have any requests.

Part of the idea behind geekyoto was to find a way to find out about places, what is happening in the world around us, what can we take into our lives. Equally it is about the general wonder we should all feel about other places on this planet, other peoples lives. With such a rich tapestry of places, peoples and culture we should relish the adventure of just finding out about somewhere else.

With this thought in mind I am extremely pleased to announce that geekyoto is working with Edward Scotcher on what we hope will be the first of a series of events about other places on this planet. The geekyoto Global Briefings.

If you got to geekyoto 2008 you might remember Edwards talk about Africa and technology and his wonderful telling of the story of Fashoda. If you can not remember or did not make it you can watch a video:

On April 25th 2009, in London we plan to hold Africa Gathering a day for thinkers, supporters, sponsors, doers, geeks, dreamers – and everybody else to come and share, promote, highlight, progress and evolve issues related to ICT, social networking and technology in Africa.

We hope that you will join us.
