Dave Graney: Social Networks and the Unknown

Listen to Dave Graney: Social Networks and the Unknown

If the internet was cut off tomorrow, would you be happy? Dave Graney would be.

Appearing onstage at Lunchbox/Soapbox, and in his characteristically meandering style, the flamboyant stalwart of Melbourne’s music scene ponders the question: do social networks and technology inspire us to think of the future?

Reflecting on technology’s ability to send people “spiralling inwards”, Graney observes the past, present and future through the temporal perspective of each, receives a tap on the shoulder from the unknown (via Facebook), and shares some networked wisdom from a certain man from the future.
