Pre-Conference Fun for @thinkingdigital

Who else is going to Thinking Digital Conference this year? Looking forward to it, and there’s a chance to start the conversations beforehand with a conference profile (only viewable to conference delegates)… wonder who else I can find who at the less-geek/techie end of things…  See a video summarising last year’s conference!

Thinking Digital Conference #TDC11

Thinking Digital 2010
I had my eye on this conference for 2010, but didn’t have the time or the money.  I would have been particularly keen to meet @briansolis (author of Engage, which is awaiting me on my bookshelf) and @documentally (well, again, for @documentally), but it was not to be! Thankfully @jas produced a great blog post about #TDC10, and I look forward to watching all the videos he has included!

Thinking Digital 2011
Thanks to my work with CODEC, I (and @pmphillips) will be going to #TDC11, and I’m really looking forward to it, even though I have no idea what the programme is yet! I tweeted about having booked my tickets, and shortly after received a Tweet from @herbkim welcoming me to the conference – he then clearly checked out my website and I received the following Tweet: “@drbexl I am a big fan of polymaths and polymaths tend to be big fans of @ThinkingDigital :-)”

What is Thinking Digital About?
If you’re wondering what Thinking Digital is about, read below (courtesy of @herbkim, the organiser):

“Thinking Digital is an annual conference where the world’s greatest thinkers and innovators gather to inspire, to entertain, and to discuss the latest ideas and technologies.

Defining exactly what to expect at Thinking Digital isn’t easy. We pride ourselves on the eclectic nature of our schedule. One moment you’ll be experiencing a first UK appearance of Live Mesh (as attendees where treated to in 2008) and the next you’ll be hearing about the science behind creating a million dollar perfume from a world class expert.

But what you can always count on is getting the chance to hear talks by, and build relationships with, some of the most thought provoking, influential and inspirational figures you’ll ever meet.

The conference is run by Codeworks, a not-for-profit organisation set up to support, develop and help grow the digital industries in North East England. Thinking Digital is not intended to make a profit, and any extra revenues generated will be used to support the region’s digital sector.”
