It was all just a meme – thirty years of cyber culture

The emergence of the web ~30 years ago led to the growth of a new cyber (internet) culture. This instant and global exchange of information drove subcultures that have spawned social movements, influenced elections, produced new economies, made people celebrities, as well as unfortunately, harbored nefarious activities.

With Cybera, SRNET and MRNet’s beginnings paralleling the rise of cyber culture in the early to mid-90s, the Cyber Summit will look back at the last three decades, and how cyber culture has influenced Western Canada’s network. We will explore the ways people share and interact online, and how that has impacted research, cybersecurity, education, and the workforce. This event will also look to the next 30 years, with thought provoking predictions, suggestions for IT leaders to consider, and of course, lots of memes.

Cyber Summit 2024 will take place November 13-14 (with workshops on November 12), once again at the Banff Park Lodge in Banff, Alberta.
