Listening to Firefox

Friday, May 20th, 2011

The “Listening to Firefox” discussion event on Sunday 15th of May aimed to open up a space for new discussions specifically related to social, political and economic aspects of creative practices which embrace and include technology – all under the banner “Wider Implications of Software Culture.” It was also an experiment in hosting a different kind of dialogue across the various groups and practices which meet at MadLab in Manchester.
