  • Blog Post: Thinking Digital 10 recap

    I was going to do a long post telling you how brilliant I thought Thinking Digital was this week in Gateshead here in the UK (it’s our version of TED really) but I’m a known fanboy of the conference and Herb Kim so I’ll leave it to Alison Gow of the Liverpool Echo and my pal Marc Holmes from Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Thinking Digital–Day 1 recap

    [image credit: David Coxon ] Wow, what an epic day at Thinking Digital here in the North East of England.

  • Blog Post: I just had Gordon Brown in my living room

    Wow…I never thought I’d be blogging here about Gordon Brown but having just watched his talk from TED in Oxford earlier this year I was genuinely moved to do so.

  • Blog Post: TED player

    I’ve been a fan of the work of Thirteen23.com for a long time and recently went back to try their Blu client for Twitter again.

  • Blog Post: Thinking Digital – TED for the UK

    I spent a few days in Newcastle (England) last week at Thinking Digital 2009 (TD) and it’s taken all weekend for my brain to defrag the amount I took in and give you my measured view on the event.
