"The mobile has taken its place in a time marked by increasing
connectivity, unprecedented mobility, and the emergence of new
cultures, communities and collectivities, and it is now helping to
shape that new, emerging world." Dr. Sadie Plant 'On the Mobile'

For it's second event at the Science Museum's newly opened Dana Centre,
Cybersalon scans the wireless network to present an investigation into
'Mobile Futures'. How are mobile phones changing our personal and
social space? Should the networks solely control wireless development?
Has mobile technology liberated communication or revealed a darker,
more dysfunctional side to our natures? With mobile phones used as
everything from detonators in the Madrid bombings to child security
devices, what are we to make of this increasingly indispensable
technology?

Using it's trademark discussion/club format and complemented by the
Dana Centre's state of the art technological resources, Cybersalon
assembles a panel of experts to explore the nature and impact of the
ubiquitous mobile. Our panel includes: Paul Amery, Head of Partner
Strategy at Orange; Giles Lane, Head of Proboscis - a creative studio
which researches, develops and promotes innovation; and Professor James
Woudhuysen, international forecasting guru and Professor of Forecasting
and Innovation at De Montfort University. The session is chaired by
Simon Evans of Cybersalon and introduced by Dr Richard Barbrook of the
Hypermedia Research Centre, University of Westminster.

The evening also includes a range of presentation, practical sessions
and performance exploring the theme - with highlights including Mobile
Reflections - a Flash presentation of reflections, thoughts and
anecdotes about mobile technologies by participants of the Cybersalon
'Mobile Futures' and Futuresonic 'Mobile Connections' events all
communicated via their mobile phones; Kirsty MacKay's 'i-capture' - her
diary exhibition sponsored by Vodafone Live, Urban Tapestries - a
research project exploring the social and cultural uses of the
convergence of place and mobile technologies, 'hands-on' viewings of
mobile artifacts from the Science Museum archive, Bluejacking - a
session demonstrating what you can get up to with your Bluetooth
enabled handset, stand-up comedy from science writer Timandra Harkness
and a live DJ/VJ set from the Dublab All Stars mixed remotely via their
mobile phones.

Complete with a wired café-bar connecting it to people all around the
world, the Dana Centre brings exciting, informative and lively
discussion to people who want to talk about challenging and cutting
edge topics in science, the arts and culture. The evening will be web
cast live from the Dana Centre, enabling a worldwide audience to engage
and interact with the event.
