As you all know, Flossie overlaps a lot with Fossbox and we’re really excited about this year’s conference – it’ll be packed with exciting workshops on ‘internet of things’ and connected, collaborative computing. A full programme will be coming soon.

Do you use assistive technologies? Do you have ideas about their design? Would you like to know more about ‘smart’ assistive environments and have a go at re-imagining assisted living?
We’re bringing together product design students, architecture students, makers and coders with users of assistive technology to try to come up with some innovative prototypes. You don’t need to know anything about design, tech or coding — just bring your experience and ideas! Designers and technologists need to learn from you and we hope you will also learn more about new technologies coming down the pipeline and their implications.

I had a great time at Geek Girl Meetup 2012 — my talk on online surveillance and OSSD provoked a lot of discussion. View my presentation here.
