The line between real and virtual worlds is becoming increasingly murky for many. In many instances our lives begin to depend on the virtual, making it even easier to lose control over them. So who takes over? Machines, other people, or something else? We devote this evening to the exploration of how we see ourselves in the on and off-line spheres.
