To make most of the educator and philosopher Alejandro Piscitelli visit in Barcelona, we came up with a different interview: we gave him some concepts on key issues we are exploring at CCCB Lab: innovation, emergence, complexity, media convergence, serendipity, expanded education, etc. so that the author of Internet: la imprenta del siglo XXI and Ciberculturas 2.0 could give us some sort of oral tweets as a reply. Piscitelli accepted the challenge quite naturally, and this is the result.
