[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Wish For The Future Technology Workshop

The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed,” William Gibson.   What will you do? How will you make sure that you, or your children, thrive in the future?  Will you settle for merely surviving the future?  Or will you create the future by inventing it? What will do to master the future and make technology work for you, your children, and your business?

The Puerto Rico Python Interest Group, along with Optico Fiber from Critical Hub Networks, is proud to present the first ever “Wish For the Future” (W4TF)  technology workshop.  The week long workshop is open to ages 9 to 99 and will provide an introduction to digital media technologies.  As space is limited, tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis.  Interested participants can find out more information by visiting the PRPIG community on Google Plus, the PRPIG Facebook Page, and Twitter @pr_pig.

Wish For The Future

The W4TF is a hub of inspiration, ideas, and activities to facilitate cross-generational learning among kids and adults aged 10 - 99. It’s aim is to foster a creative platform for envisioning a future in which the world will work for 100% of humanity. How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone? If you were the pilot of “Spaceship earth.” how would you operate it to sustain humanity and the planet? What do you want to make of the future?

The workshop is planned for July 28th until Aug 1.  Sessions will be from 12:00pm to 4:00 pm.  Critical Hub Networks has generously donated the theater of the art deco El Telégrafo building in Santurce.

The workshop will consist of workstations that participants will rotate through during the course of the week.  In each workstation the participant will interact with some advanced technology to help create a time capsule with the workshop's collective wish for the future.  The time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 2112.
