London Chapter

Hi!

Are there people interested in a UK, or even London chapter? Please announce interest here.

I believe a few longtime community members and writers on these topics, are in the UK.
@davidc and @anded both seem to be in the area. (Check the other posts in this category : ) Others I know of are not yet on this forum.

I’m interested in a UK chapter. How did you envisage it working?

Thank you @metasj I am not in London right now but shall be there soon
@CEIW yes that’s a great idea

@CEIW Great Idea, I would be very keen to assist forming a chapter in whatever form that may take. I am not currently living in London (just 20 minutes north of St. Pancras via train), but hope to be working and living centrally in the coming months. Are there any requirements/ procedures or formal infrastructure the Centre for Humane Technology has to establish such chapters under their name?

Great! I expect we should first look into the possibility of an existing U.K. chapter (I looked, but couldn’t find one), and maybe form consensus, based on that, whether a U.K. or London chapter is what’s needed.

I’m at easy distance from London (Brighton), so potentially agnostic about remit.

I’m also interested in a London chapter, or at least semi-regular meetups.

I’ve also looked but am also unable to find a chapter in the UK.

Is there anything I can do to help you set this up?

I too would be interested in a London Chapter. I am currently teaching in a school not far from Kingston Upon Thames.

I would also be happy to work with someone to set this up!?

Hi everyone, as all others have said, I’d love to help out and be involved in a London chapter!

Hi - I’d be very interest as would others where I work. I work at UCL in London as a social scientist in a the engineering faculty - I’ve felt for a number of years our new UCL department (Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy - STEaPP) as having the informal tagline ‘engineering with humanity’. We have projects on privacy in IoT, international relations and cybersecurity, digital tech to address domestic violence, and I’m looking for an industrial partner for a PhD on developing new digital tech to support self-governing communities.

Hi all - share the interest in the subject and in doing what I can to help establish a London chapter. A good possibility that I can volunteer a space to meet in central London.

Hi, your research sounds really interesting. I’m notionally based in Civil Engineering, but doing a multi-disciplinary PhD, essentially looking at integrating consideration of future citizens (with a particular eye on the impacts from scientific and tech advances) into Foresight process for cities. It’d be good to know more about what you are doing. We were partners with UCL on a couple of projects on cities and infrastructure.

Hi all, I’m doing a talk in London on the 13th June on neuroscience of digital distractions based on new book Homo Distractus. It usually sells out, so if this sounds interesting, take a look! https://uk.funzing.com/funz/funzing-talks-neuroscience-of-digital-distraction-17272

Hello all, I’m from London UK, and I’d look to meet up. Do we have regular meet-ups already happening? If not, I’m happy to help set it up.

Looks like Humanetech London is yet to kick off, but it’s summer now, so how about at end of August I:
Send link to a doodle for meetup (or set up Meetup gp) for time and date - for which I need emails… mine should show up on profile but if not it’s J.manning.17atucl.ac.uk
Pursue location offer - if not central I am sure we can find space at UCL
How does that sound?!

Hi all, just heads up am doing a talk in London on Neuroscience of digital distractions on the 14th August. Is in Shoreditch. Come over if around - and perhaps it could be a good start for a meet up now! @JuliaM @jfhector

I’m interested in a London meetup! In and out of the UK these days but will definitely participate if I’m around.

I’m interested in a London meet up! :slight_smile:
