12.20 TALK: GOOD IDEAS OVER TIME
How do good ideas in technology fare over time? Richard Banks (Microsoft) will discuss the afterlives of our technological objects (both physical and digital) and the ideas that emerge when we start thinking about possessions in the long term - as heirlooms that will live on after we're gone.
