Twelfth Tiree Tech Wave (TTW-12)
8-12 October 2016, Isle of Tiree, Scotland, UK


A hands-on making and meeting event exploring the edges of technology on the wild edge of Scotland

Facebook:  TTW12 event —  general TTW page  —  Tiree Tech Wave Talk

The Atlantic fringe was the haven of scholarship through the Dark Ages and is the haunt of wind-surfers today. The Tech Wave tries to capture a little of the spirit of each (see vision); from mashups to breadboards, Arduino to RDF, we will consider the social and philosophical challenges of technology by engaging directly with it. Come to take time to explore ideas that keep being put on the backburner, to be stimulated by others, or simply to be intellectually refreshed.

New faces and old are all welcome 🙂

As always there is no fixed agenda, the issues and activities depend on you!  If you want to get an idea for what happens, read about previous Tech Waves or see some of the projects or outcomes.

Do note that this Tech Wave is running Saturday 8th Oct  to Wednesday 12th Oct rather than Thurs–Mon which has been our normal pattern.  This has been to avoid clashes with other events.  This is also the week preceding the Tiree Wave Classic, so if anyone would like to make a longer trip and take in wind surfing, this is your chance!

DEn-logoDuring this Tech Wave members of the Digtal Economy Network will be conducting research activity “Exploring Common Values: Diving Deeply into the Digital Frontier“.

Tiree Tech Wave offers a time to step out, albeit momentarily, from a target-driven world, to experiment and play with hardware and software, to discuss the issues of our new digital maker culture, what we know and what we seek to understand, and above all to make things together.

This is all about technology and people: the physical device that sits in our hands, the data.gov.uk mashup that tells us about local crime, the new challenges to personal privacy and society and the nation state.

Important notice: children under 16 must be accompanied at all times by an adult who is responsible for them .
