Your tech-tastic Dublin to-dos for the week ahead:
Lifelogging, Lifehacking and City Logging, Science Gallery, 12 June
Five speakers present their ideas and experiences of lifelogging, i.e. recording data day-to-day with the aim of hacking together a better life. Part of the Dublin Science Gallerys exhibition on the same theme, this talk should offer an interesting cross section of the philosophy and practice, as well as the complications (i.e., privacy, software used etc) involved in recording a life through technology.
TADHack, NDRC, 13-14 June
Part of a global series of events, the Telecom Application Developer Hackathon is a meeting for developers looking to code, create and get involved with mobile apps. Come with your own ideas, or respond to sponsors challenges (Intel, NDRC, Oracle and others are already involved). Theres also the option to take part remotely or showcase a product youre already developed. Head over to their website to find out more and register.
Bizarre Bloomsday Brunch, North Great Georges Street, 16 June
What do you mean you didnt know it was Bloomsday on Sunday? The good news is its not too late to get in on the Joycean action, and it doesnt have to be one of those cheesy, tourist-y affairs which necessitates wearing a bonnet or pretending to enjoy potted meats, either. North Great Georges Street will be turned into an Edwardian street party this weekend, complete with cream buns and cakes, a live performance from Meltybrains?, and something called the lucky potato sports day, which were very much looking forward to. Also worth a punt: The Ulysses Express, a unique DART journey playing host to readings, songs and performances which promises a truly immersive experience of poetry (or, well, fiction) in motion.
