Abstract: The digital revolution has changed every aspect of our lives, the very essence of how we live, work and play. Instead of creating an alternative cyber space parallel to our reality as it was often envisioned by techno prophets, the opposite is happening: information is no longer confined to the pixels on our screens. The entire physical world — even living and breathing matter — is being infused with data, demanding new, unprecedented forms of interactivity. You may also want to check out his recent TED talk.
