As you probably know, we organise events at SPACE4 which are on subjects relevant to CoTech coops (broadly tech and anticapitalism!). We’ve always been slightly embarrassed that these are so London-centric. So this working remotely thing gives us an opportunity to have some remote events.
We are therefore on the lookout for speakers for the next SPACE4 CoTech event, and we would like to cover the role technology has played in the unprecedented events of the past few weeks.
The primary questions we’ll be asking are:
How has technology been used to combat Covid19? What examples or case studies are there? What effect has Covid19 had on the UK economy and the tech sector? Is COVID-19 going to bring down capitalism?
Would anyone be up for talking? We’re not sure of dates yet, will depend a bit on speakers (these are usually evening events, though we think that since everyone’s wfh daytime might be better right now).
Thoughts? Any potential speakers out there?
