More Information
Description:

Many trends point to a brighter future. Illness, violence and poverty are declining worldwide, while literacy and access to the Web are expanding. But the world is also becoming more unequal. The rising tide of racism, nationalism and authoritarianism threatens to reverse the democratic trend. Climate change threatens to destroy ecosystems and crops, and force mass migrations. Societies are rapidly aging, and jobs are threatened by automation. We now understand that the Web has both expanded and undermined democracy, and artificial intelligence is giving corporations, governments and criminals enormous new powers.  We need a sexy, high-tech vision of a radically democratic future, but religious and political movements mostly want to return to the 20th or 13th centuries. In the coming decades we can begin fighting for a future with global security, radically longer lives and universal basic income for all, or more inequality in health, wealth and power. We need a technoprogressive program to advance the Enlightenment.

Paco Ragageles - Fondatore di Campus Party

Nació en Barcelona en 1967. Los primeros años de su carrera los dedicó a la música y trabajó como DJ, posteriormente coordinó un grupo de estaciones de radio en España.
En 1997, junto con un grupo de amigos, fundó Campus Party en un pequeño pueblo de España, Mollina. El evento se convirtió, en poco tiempo, en una referencia en el mercado de eventos tecnológicos en línea y dejó la radio para centrarse en la tecnología. Desde entonces, ha encabezado la expansión de Campus Party, primero en España y luego en 2008 en Latinoamérica, con ediciones en México, Brasil, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Costa Rica y con muchas otras ediciones en Europa, como Reino Unido, Italia y Alemania. Durante los últimos veinte años, ha fundado varias empresas dedicadas al mundo de la tecnología, centradas principalmente en la innovación, el marketing en Internet y la difusión de la sociedad de la información.
En este momento, trabaja en la expansión de Campus Party a nivel mundial para convertirse en la principal comunidad geek del planeta y en la creación de la fundación FeelTheFuture centrada en estudiar el impacto de las nuevas tecnologías en el empleo y ayudar a los jóvenes emprendedores a lograr el apoyo que necesitan.
“Hace 17 años era todo mucho más complejo… La tecnología era menos accesible tanto en el factor económico como de conocimiento. El target original era el programador puro, pero con el tiempo se ha expandido y abarca nuevas áreas”  dice Paco acerca de Campus Party .
