About IAM Weekend 19 randomness
IAM Weekend 19 — the Quantumness of Archipelagos, check it out!
IN RANDOMNESS WE TRUST
It’s not only the slogan of the most amazing conference I’ve been to but also something I personally profoundly believe.
That’s why, after coming back from Barcelona my head is full of random images, quotes and brilliant ideas from the weekend.
Here you can find a list of the inspiring speakers with some inspiring quotes I wrote down in my notebook during the conference.
As may seem out of context (and they are), just embrace the randomness and get inspired!
Official videos of the presentations will be soon released by IAM Weekend!

What’s at the edge of the universe? Maybe there’s no edge.
We, as humans, have to overcome the fear that we are not as special as we think we are.
The safety of ignorance can’t compete with the beauty of curiosity.

Where are the boundaries between real and virtual?
Is virtual reality an alternative to physical colonization? Is Google Earth the new battlefield?
Dr. Francesca Ferrando
Can technology be enlightened?
The future is here, now!
Everything is possible but nothing is neutral.
By existing we are shifting the direction of our planet.
Is technology brain hacking or addiction coding?
