It’s world Emoji Day on the 17th
Continue reading “Want to exhibit at Technotopia?”
Emoji’s have been used since the beginning of the internet to transmit emotion in the written medium. As internet technology advanced, so did the use of the emoji, with previously pure text bits of ascii art turning into full-fledged animated faces and symbols. We’ve all used them, and we’re excited for the future of them! World Emoji day celebrates the history of these emotional expressions, and encourages you to be exceptionally emotive! After all, it’s always nice to let someone know how you’re feeling when you write, isn’t it? Emoji’s are just one more way!
We’ve been planning this for a while and are finally able to announce that as part of Bristol Technology Week we will be running the Bristol Tech Fair in collaboration with Technotopia and the WISE campaign. As a follow on from our previous Tech³Shed engaged careers fair in March we have gotten together with Technotopia and the WISE campaign to run what promises to be a brilliant and fun day, mixing discussion, with careers and children!! So put it in your diaries that we’ll be at the Colston Hall on the 9th of November!
Happy History of Math 2.0 Day
“A celebration of the blending of technology and mathematics. For a lot of us, math wasn’t a favorite subject, we’d spend the entire period staring at the equations and wondering what sort of livid madman designed these torture chambers on paper. Ultimately, however, we realised that math is utterly indispensable in our modern world.”

To all our Canadian friends and family on July the 1st! (its also national icecream month btw)
We have a few things coming up around wellbeing at work and mental health and while we try to keep this to positive Tech stuff we do think it’s worth sharing a couple of things …
The Tech to Connect Challenge is looking to help civil society develop their early stage ideas for tech that enables more or better interactions between people. Tech can be alienating or divisive for those that are isolated, so we want to help civil society translate their knowledge into good ideas for new ways to connect people.
RSA: The Power of People for Transformative Change – “Connect: Create: Collaborate” Thursday 8th August from our friend Michelle Preston
