Opening Minds at the Science Gallery
The irony of the internet, James Boyle says, is that it was invented for science but is easier to use to search for shoes or books, rather than for carrying out scientific research. Wouldn't it be revolutionary, he suggests, if it really did work for science?
Boyle is the William Neal Reynolds Professor of Law at Duke University, and the award-winning author of many books and essays. He is also the keynote speaker in the Open Minds speaker series at the Science Gallery in Dublin. The series has been conceived as a platform where Irish and international experts will tackle the topical issues facing Irish businesses in the science, technology and innovation sector, and generate solutions and ideas that will grow our reputation for innovative development.
Open Minds is a joint initiative of law firm McCann FitzGerald, and Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin. We had the honour of producing a small, mind-opening piece of typography and graphics for the event.
