What we're about
'Bridging Brains Tech and Culture’ is Permanent Beta’s slogan. We are convinced that the most exciting developments in our society today come about when art, technology and science meet. This is where the creative and innovative ideas which contribute to solutions to every large issue of our time: education, healthcare, decentralising government or innovation, emerge. Permanent Beta aims to be the platform where all three disciplines meet.
Join this group if you want to share and learn new things and if you want to contribute to a better world. In this community you meet interesting people, social entrepreneurs and pioneers. And of course it's fun!
In this group we organise events around the latest technology and gadgets. And in our Meetups we try to connect this technology to challenges that we see in our society and our daily life. Examples of topics are education, sustainability, lifehacking, drones, robots, employment, healthcare... but actually everything that's in the scope of art, technology and science. And if you want to share knowledge yourself, let us know and we help you organise a Meetup around it!
