"New knowledge for creative polymaths" - Peter Cochrane
Imperica is an online magazine which covers topics in and around contemporary culture. While our main focus is on issues with a relationship to digital technology, we cover a wider range - pretty much anything concerning the life (lives?) we live today comes into our range.
Fundamentally, we're all about exploring ideas: exploring, dissecting, and reviewing them. We aim to be critical without being negative; analytical without being boring.
We occasionally run events, usually in a central London location. Our events have ranged from a 30th anniversary of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer, to one on the past, present and future of wearable technologies. Our event archive is here.
The Imperica newsletter is a weekly digest of all things interesting from around the web, featuring the rather brilliant Web Curios from Matt Muir. Sign up here to receive it by email. The newsletter is also published to the website every Friday afternoon.
A little bit more about us
The Managing Editor of Imperica is Paul Squires. Imperica is published by a company called Perini in a small office in the centre of Oxford. We do this sort of thing (that is, write, research, and produce) on a commercial basis too. These services are provided under our commercial agency brand, Perera.
