I’m just travelling home from Belgrade in Serbia, where I’ve spent the last few days at Resonate. Resonate is a conference, or more like a festival, primarily attended by people doing visualization work. It’s full of great talks from a community that is very tightly networked, brought together by the equally highly networked Filip Visnjik,

On Thursday 12th of July 2012 I spoke at Getty’s “CurveLive” event on social photography. Here are some notes I wrote up soon after that I’ve been a little lax in posting. Hopefully they’re still interesting. For reference, here’s a video of the event. My bit starts at 12:50 minutes in. Here are my notes:

I’d forgotten about this video from last year’s Innovation Day event at Microsoft Research in Cambridge (so this was from about April 2009).

I was lucky enough to do a talk at the recent Interaction 10 conference in Savannah. An amazingly inspiring event, spread over a number of really eclectic locations (a theatre, a pharmacy, a blacksmiths and a restaurant). Compared to the inaugural conference in 2008, which was also in Savannah, the distribution of locations really encouraged

PSFK posted the video of the talk I gave recently at their Good Ideas Salon in London. It’s about 30 minutes long and covers some of our thoughts in Cambridge around how people get sentimental about objects, particularly heirlooms, and how that might apply to digital and technological objects in the future.

A bit weird this. I did a talk a few weeks ago at an event in London organized by PSFK, the trends/blogging group based in NY. The event was called The Good Ideas Salon. They haven’t posted video of my talk yet, which is apparently coming. In the meantime, though, they are doing a strange

I never really mentioned how I got on with my presentation a few weeks ago at the PSFK Good Ideas Salon. It was an engaging day, held at the Guardian’s new, sparkling offices near Kings Cross. “New Ideas” provides for a broad topic area,  and the speakers and panels matched that. The day begun with
