The leading global forum bringing together decisions-makers, developers and users from all over the world to cross-fertilize Open technological, business and societal initiatives to shape the digital future.
THINK was focused on the fundamental issues at the heart of these questions, like Open Data, Internet neutrality, Cloud computing, Commons, Smart Nodes and the Internet of Things. Those involved in these areas shared their visions with delegates, to help our ‘knowledge society’ evolve.
EXPERIMENT enabled the general public to try out and assess both Open Source software and hardware, so they can find out more about the Internet of Things, ‘relearn’ the art of collective creation, meet ‘makers’ and ‘DIYers’, get a better understanding of natural interfaces and get much more from the Internet and Open Source.
NoSQL, Message Queues, Asynchronous programming, Web Sockets, Distributed Applications, Workers, HTML5 & CSS3, Decentralized Social Networks… and to the list of buzzwords we should add .. CUDA, Parallelisms, Big Data Streams, sure to be hot topics in 2012 !
