A bit different from our usual Meetups, this event is the second year we have hosted Goodnight Disruption, a London Tech Week Party. It's hosted by CoTech, a £10million UK alliance of 36 worker-owned tech businesses.
Discover the innovation projects designed and built by the 36 CoTech company members; meet the coding graduates of the latest Founders & Coders cohort; and throw off the tired cliches of disruption to instead discuss meaningful tech careers, innovation and positive social impact.
Doors at 6.30pm, speakers from 7pm and then dance floor from 8pm.
Short talks about internet freedom, data and democracy, worker ownership and more from:
Naomi Alexander Naidoo, The Finance Innovation Lab, @thefinancelab
Martha Dark. Open Rights Group, @OpenRightsGroup
Rob Gamm, Library of Things, @libraryofthings
Dr Sara Gorgoni, University of Greenwich, @SaraGorgoni
Kayleigh Walsh, Outlandish, @outlandish
Plus a VR and AR demo room from Animorph Coop, showcasing their Virtual Inclusion empathy machine, and 'Holopedia' their Magic Leap One app that uses object recognition to extract relevant information from Wikipedia.
