Run by the wonderfully energetic John Allsopp, Web Directions 2015 is a cross-disciplinary conference for those blessed with living the Southern Hermisphere . It’s been going since 2004, and was held this year in Luna Park, a surreal 30s-era funfair in the shadow of Sydney Harbour bridge.
It explains why I believe a new institutional architecture is required to support a natively digital nation, and what form these new institutions might take.
It’s basically me presenting the ideas of Richard Pope.
The video of the talk will be more meaningful, but people afterwards were nagging me a url of the presentation, so this’ll do for now.
[update] Here’s the video of the talk and demo.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking at the D14 Conference in Glasgow.
I had a fine day, going to several interesting workshops, and catching up with old friends from my BBC and Channel 4 days. The speech itself seemed to go ok; the questions were excellent.
And in my talk I was invited by the organisers, Interactive Scotland, to do some gentle future gazing. So if you already know about GDS and GOV.UK, skip to about 19m30s in which is where the new stuff starts.
