A Tech- Inspired Open Mic

Blockchain is the future (or so technologists say). But many of the core human issues raised by the invention of blockchain tech are topics that have fueled the discourse of artists and thinkers for millennia. We invite you to explore the many themes this topic stirs, be it centralization and decentralization, permanence and immutability, or ever-present classics like global capitalism. Bring poetry, essay excerpts, songs, short comedy routines, or other verbal art (original or simply for you to read with authorial attribution) to perform at this tech-inspired open mic. We encourage topics directly related to blockchain, but any tech-related art is welcome. Potential themes to explore may include (but aren’t limited to):
  • Technology and duplication vs. inimitability (i.e., can’t be copied)
  • Centralization and decentralization in human ecosystems
  • Permanence/immutability
  • Technology’s influence on human social consciousness
  • Social or ecological impact on the biosphere
  • Global capitalism and the rise of the corporation
  • Ethical implications of technology
This event is free and open to the public.
