Meta Refresh is a conference on the construction of user experience on the web. The 2013 edition is about letting go. It’s about learning the skills necessary to build experiences which cannot possibly exist in any medium apart from the internet. It will showcase people who have a deep understanding of what the internet is and what it can be: people who have built experiences and can tell you what they have learnt.
