MCN is delighted to announce that anthropologist and researcher, Amber Case, will be delivering the keynote address at MCN 2018 in Denver. Amber has been studying the interaction between humans and technology, and how the tools we use not only redefine our relationship to the world but also often end up shaping our own behaviors. As we explore the many facets of "Humanizing the Digital", expect Amber to kick off the conversation on a high note.
