:: the design challenge of pervasive computing

What happens to society when there are hundreds of microchips for every man, woman and child on the planet – most of them (the chips) talking to each other? What are the implications of a world filled with sensors and actuators? What does 'the world as spread sheet' look like? What will it mean it to be 'always on' in a real-time economy? Some of the world’s most insightful designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs will address these questions at Doors of Perception 7 in Amsterdam 14, 15, 16 November 2002. The theme of the celebrated international gathering is Flow: the design challenge of pervasive computing.

Doors of Perception (Doors) is an international conference which helps set the design agenda for information and communication technologies. Doors brings together innovators, entrepreneurs, educators, and designers, who need to imagine alternative futures - sustainable ones - and take design steps to realize them. Our products are a better understanding of the design process; scenarios for services that meet emerging needs in new ways; and new connections and capabilities among innovative people and organisations. Seven conferences have been organised since 1993. >from *Doors of Perception 7*, october 28, 2002
