2014 Events: Signal vs. Noise

March 20
7:00 pm

In a world full of noise – from the 24-hour news cycle to Big Data – we’re flooded with new information. Spur begins its five-city festival of ideas with a conversation that cuts through the noise. Paul Holdengräber (Live from the New York Public Library), George Prochnik (author of In Pursuit of Silence: Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise) and Arthur Schafer (Director of the Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics, University of Manitoba) discuss the search for meaning in a saturated world.
