We’re stoked that the Genome Laser will be broadcasting at London’s biggest tech seasonal shindig - Silicon Christmas - at Bloomsbury Ballroom on 14th December.
Burning Man was the perfect place for Genome Laser to fire its first genomes - a unique annual event in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada where thousands of creative minds come together for a week to build a city and make their wildest ideas come to life in the form of incredible structure, art, music and performance.
Silicon Christmas is a gathering of some of the most entrepreneurial, creative and pioneering minds in technology, which makes is an ideal next event and community to unleash the Genome Laser.
If you’re wondering what’s next for Genome Laser, all we can say for now is that we had a blast and were so blown away by the incredible response to the Burning Man project that we felt that the journey must continue, and must continue to be purpose-driven.
Some background from the Silicon Christmas website:
WE TAKE 900 DIGITAL DISRUPTERS, CREATIVE CONSTRUCTORS, HUSTLER ENTREPRENEURS, SAVVY-INVESTORS AND MEDIA INSIDERS OFFLINE FOR ONE WONDERFUL FREE NIGHT OF BOOZE, BEATS, AND BACCHANALIAN REVELRY.
OUR ATTENDEES WORK HARD ALL YEAR ROUND TO MAKE LONDON ONE OF THE HOTTEST TECH CITIES IN THE WORLD. BOOTSTRAPPED OR FUNDED, LARGE OR SMALL — THEY CUT THE DEALS, WRITE THE CODE, DESIGN THE UIS AND ALL-ROUND HUSTLE THEIR BUTTS OFF TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
SILICON CHRISTMAS IS WHERE WE BRING THEM ALL TOGETHER, ONCE A YEAR, TO SAY THANKS. OUR COMMITMENT TO THEM IS TO KEEP THIS ALMIGHTY PARTY FREE SO THEY CAN FOCUS ON HAVING A THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES.
