One of the most innovative global events - called "one of the highlights of the technophile calendar by the BBC" - is coming to Korea for the second time on September 4, 5 and 6, 2008. Lift is a unique experience focusing on networking and inspiration, featuring inspiring talks and activities to look into the future of our networked society. The conference - which will be simultaneously translated in Korean and English - will raise an important question: what happens after the web browser?
At the end of a decade during which the internet revolutionized our lives and organizations, the network is now moving beyond the computer screen, invading objects, cities, toys, cars or medical devices. Where will the next big changes happen? What are the world's most innovative people working on right now?
Lift Asia will gather the global community of doers and thinkers in partnership with organizations like Daum, the Nabi Art Center, or the Jeju Knowledge Promotion Agency. The event will feature:
• Talks covering topics like urban technologies, online worlds, virtual money, new lifestyles or robots, featuring speakers like Joonmo Kwon (CEO of Nexon, the world's largest online games company), networked cities visionaries Jeffrey Huang (EPFL), Yang Soo Yin (The Living) and Adam Greenfield (Nokia design), I-mode inventor Takeshi Nastuno and fellow innovator Tomoaki Kasuga who works on the robots of the future, Gadget loving and Emmy award winning American guru Dan Dubno, and legendary speakers like Bruce Sterling (initiator of Cyberpunk), Bruno Bonnell, Frédéric Kaplan or Jan Chipchase.
• Interactive art installations curated by Nabi Art Center, creating a unique experience based on inspiring and engaging activities divided in four zones: opening, sharing, sparkling and expanding zones.
• Community speeches where participants can freely present their works and ideas inside one of the open rooms.
