Event

Jonathon Keats: Language Born of Technology
The technological realm cultivates not only new ideas and products but also some pretty remarkable linguistic innovations to go with them: How else would words like qubit (a unit of quantum information) or in vitro meat (chicken and beef grown in an industrial vat) enter our language? Conceptual artist and Wired magazine 'Jargon Watch' columnist Jonathon Keats, author of Virtual Words, investigates the interplay between words and ideas in our fast-paced, tech-driven society, examining how such words get coined; what relationship they have to their subject matter; and why some (blog) succeed, while others (flog) fail.
