About the Event:
Wired for Wonder is a 2-day conference like no other packed full of talks, workshops, performances, food experience, and wonder. The event focuses on Technology, Life, Business, Arts, Science, and Awe, and is quite quirky and unconventional in its approach and differs quite a lot from a traditional style conference.
Some of the amazing speakers this year included Atari Founder and technology pioneer Nolan Bushnell; chief evangelist at Apple Guy Kawasaki; neural complexity specialist Dr Fiona Kerr; 15 year old inventor Jack Andraka; and futurist Ben Hemmersley.
