Postdigital Lunch 04: From random participation to active mining

People, processes, resources and spaces

Our fourth Postdigital Lunch: From random participation to active mining: people, processes, resources and spaces" took place on February 25.

Duncan Baker Brown (Architect, Academic, Author & Environmental Activist. Co- Founder of BBM Sustainable Design Ltd & Senior Lecturer University of Brighton ) was in conversation with Tilo Balke (IFiS, TU BS) and Folke Köbberling (IAK, TU BS).
