Lift with Fing 2010

July 5-7, 2010   |   Marseille, France

In 2010 Lift France with Fing gathered 560 participants and explored how the technologies and concepts of the web are changing the real world today and in the future. For the last 20 years, networked technologies have redistributed the power of imagining, evaluating, and acting. But this change extends far beyond the digital. It transforms manufacturing, learning, cities, public policy, perhaps even our own minds… Themed “dot.real” Lift France with Fing 2010 explored how the real world is being “webified”.
