“What does it mean to be a futurist? Ray Kurzweil, a certified techno-geek and child prodigy, who has been described as “the restless genius” by The Wall Street Journal and “the ultimate thinking machine” by Forbes, Inc., believes he has found the key to the future of the planet. Known for his bestselling non-fiction book The Singularity is Near, Kurzweil believes that technology is and will further become irrevocably connected to our lives and mortality. Kurzweil is obsessed with how to beat death and is convinced that technology will be our salvation. Transcendent Man is an insightful and challenging documentary that asks some hard questions about the future of our planet.”

Subtle Technologies | Jen Dodd

None of that sounds very exciting compared to our core mission (bringing artists and scientists together to do cool stuff!) but without good tools for these tasks we’re spending a lot of time working around inefficient systems and, what’s worse, we lose opportunities to build on our hard work.


Toronto Events | Jen Dodd

The interview will explore what it means to make Toronto a better place, how to create new institutions and make them work, and what it means to follow your own path in life. November’s interviewee, Dina Graser, is someone who has redefined herself again and again: she has been a lawyer, community activist, political campaigner and arts producer.

3 Rules | Jen Dodd

It helps to have the cash to pay experienced A/V people, but you can ensure things go smoothly by communicating with presenters well in advance about their tech requirements, arranging enough time for a thorough tech check before the audience arrives, setting up a simple back-up system, etc.


Management | Jen Dodd

The question of how to get sponsorship for science-related BarCamps, and events in general, is something I’ve had some experience doing, so I thought I would write up my best understanding to date – my personal, evolving checklist – to share. Small sponsorship is any amount that an individual from a company can easily pledge without a detailed justification or getting approval from higher up – usually no more than hundreds of dollars.
