Welcome to Ctheory Live

Launched 100 years after the publication of Albert Einstein's special theory of relativity and a half-century after Marshall McLuhan's groundbreaking book, Understanding Media, the Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture explores the future of technoculture in an age when digital information moves at the speed of light.

With PACTAC lectures, the future of interactivity becomes a dynamic intellectual reality.  Each lecture is streamed to the internet, archived in both DVD and web-ready formats and is fully interactive, with questions from a truly global audience streaming back to speakers at the University of Victoria.
