Please email us if of interest.
Date: 6pm-8.30pm, Wednesday 22nd November 2017
Venue: Publicis, 82 Baker Street, London, W1U 6AE
Bytesize runs for 10 days and on Tuesday 28th November search engine inventor Alan Emtage will be giving a talk at 7pm.
64-BITS is an interactive, touring exhibition that celebrates the formative years of the worldwide web - recreating its key moments.
The exhibition includes the very first website, browser, search engine, e-commerce site and webcam. Part of a wider digital archaeology project, it tells the stories of the forgotten artist engineers that shaped today’s digital world.
An association with 64-BITS will suit technology / digital companies who can use the past to showcase the future.
