Chris Speed is Reader in Digital Spaces at the Edinburgh College of Art / University of Edinburgh and part of http://www.designinformatics.org. Chris has sustained a critical enquiry into how network technology can engage with the fields of architecture, design and human geography through a variety of international digital art exhibitions, funded research projects, books journals and conferences. He led the team that developed the www.talesofthings.com platform with folk from UCL, Brunel, Dundee and Salford and has developed a series of Apps that he hopes will convince you that linear time is no longer a tenable part of the IoT.
At present Chris is working on funded projects that engage with the flow of food across cities, an internet of cars, turning printers into clocks and a persistent argument that chickens are actually robots. Chris is a co-organiser and compere for the Edinburgh www.ThisHappened.org events, is co-editor of www.ubiquityjournal.net and blogs here: www.chrisspeed.net
