Naace25: A Vision for Naace
Naace has to change as the world has changed. The concept of a \'Flat World\' introduced by Thomas Friedman in his 2005 book, \'The World is Flat\" is affecting global structures and challenging the ways of doing things that saw us through the 20th century. These changes are stark for Naace, whose membership consists of many early adopters and innovators in the very technology that is causing this change. In introducing the event, not only will the reasons for change be given, but the notion of eight \"generatives\" that provide uncopyable values and therefore stability when facing the challenge of the future.

'Better than free' Kevin Kelly’s “eight generatives”: Immediacy: you can get a free copy of anything, getting it immediately has value Personalisation: generic versions are free, appropriate personalisation is worth paying for Interpretation: the ‘data’ may be free, creating useful information from that data is a service worth having Authenticity: there are plenty of copies or recordings, but ‘being there’ or experiencing the real thing is what gives value
'Better than free' Kevin Kelly’s “eight generatives”: Accessibility: ownership often sucks … to have others tend our "possessions” is far more preferable in a digital world. Embodiment: free dialogue might be useful, but in essence has no “body” but a real community has Patronage: audiences like to reward artists, musicians, authors and the like with the tokens of their appreciation, because it allows them to connect. Findability: no matter what its price, a work has no value unless it is seen, unfound masterpieces are worthless.
