Hack your brain 

We will be taking another look at what meditation is, what it means and how to find one’s own meditative medium. Chris Catterton (Head of Communications for Consciousness Hacking - cohack.life) will help guide the discussion as we delve into the deeper into the vast unexplored terriority of our minds. 

"The mission of Consciousness Hacking is to democratize the deepest and most important aspects of our human experience, making them universally accessible across cultural, religious, and geographical boundaries."


Internet security & privacy panel

As our daily lives become increasingly more intertwined with technology and the web, issues concerning our digital civil liberties become more salient. This is not only true for technologists, but for users as well. The internet has blurred the lines between consumer and creator, and now online security, privacy and access to information plays a larger role in many more people’s lives than ever before. 

Our panel will shed insights on how our technical infrastructure impacts people everyday, why they should care about it, and how to communicate the relationship between society and technology to a wider audience.
