June 26 - June 27 2008, Copenhagen, Denmark


reboot10 is an exploration of "free". "free" as in free information, free individuals, free societies, free markets, free products and services, free ideas, free minds, free to move, free software, free taxonomies, free culture, free knowledge, free to find our own way, free tools, free platforms, free minds - you continue the list...

Shifting from a world of pre-definitions, fixed structures, high costs to participate and living in the status quo - to a world of being free to determine, free to create, free flow, free to see things emerge.

"free" saturates what's happening in a world of digital decentralization - and the current fascination of "free" in the economic sense is a great validation of this deeper change.

But "free" is also an ambiguous term, always comes at an extra cost "there's no such things as a free lunch", is always in a constant state of flux "informations wants to be free, informations wants to be expensive" and is rather hard thing to get your head around.

So "free" is all around us and shaping us - perhaps it was time to explore it?.
