SHiFT 2006

Great initiative from folks in Lisbon, including some from Setúbal who I've written about before. It's a conference on "Social and Human ideas for Technology" in Lisbon in September.

Pedro Custódio of Centopeia describes it:
"We named the result of this ideas and intentions, SHiFT meaning Social and Human Ideas For Technology, and we hope it might create a central point for discussion of technology and it's role in society, whether the portuguese one or this new born global society we're talking about. SHiFT means essentially change, the idea that we're experiencing new developments every day as a society thru the use of technology. SHiFT for the principle that we don't have clear yet, what will this changes be, but we're assure that we're changing. A special desire for a SHiFT in the Portuguese society, that we want more and more technological. SHiFT for a more human approach to technology...

SHiFT aims to be simultaneous a celebration of technology and a gathering for people from different backgrounds with different experiences, working and living with this new emerging technologies. The main subjects for this year edition will be: People and Technology, Knowledge , New Forms of Economics, Blogs and Citizen Participation and last but not least, Liberty and Privacy on this new digital environments.

Hi Beverly,

thanks for mentioning SHiFT here! One minor correction is that SHiFT is being co-organized by a small group of people, most of them from Lisbon.

Most of what SHiFT aims to be, is pretty much summed up here and in the post I've made, and we're counting on opening up a new site pretty soon, there we'll present SHiFT more thoroughly and with a lot more info about it's goals and organization
