Palm is sponsoring Portland’s CyborgCamp this weekend. What is a CyborgCamp, you might ask? It’s an one day un-conference in Portland that brings together engineers, designers, and anyone else with an interest in the future of humans and computers interaction.
Palm believes the future of computing will come in a variety of devices and form factors that help connect many parts of your life. Palm is proud to sponsor a group studying the intersection of humans and technology.
CyborgCamp is an all day event, starting with breakfast at 9, going through the wrap-up and prizes at 6pm. Anthropology Ph.D. student Sally Applin will be visiting from San Francisco to discuss the notion of the “invisible cyborg.” Marshall Kirkpatrick will talk about Journalism, Information, and Time and Space Compression. Max Ogden will speak about Maps, Sharing, and the Civic Web. These are just a few of the great speakers and attendees who will be there.
The cost for CyborgCamp is only 15 dollars and includes breakfast, lunch, coffee, and drinks. Space is limited (only 120) so if you are in the Portland area be sure to sign up now. Oh, and Palm will be giving away one of our much coveted sturdy water bottles to every attendee!
