The next few months are gearing up to be a bit of a roller coaster. I’ve been working on a couple of projects that I’ll finally be able to talk about, as well as attending some pretty amazing events.
TED Global 2010: Oxford
The first event in a couple of weeks is TED Global in Oxford. I don’t yet know if I’ll be there for the event but my good friend Chris Wild will be presenting some of our work. Chris is the maestro behind The Retroscope and the nicest time traveler you’ll ever meet. I won’t give away any spoilers but I want to thank Mike and Simon for helping us get to the submission deadline in one piece!
Hyper Island Creativity Lab: Middlesborough
The day after I’ll be heading up to Middlesburgh for the Hyper Island Creativity Lab. Founded in Sweden in 1996, Hyper Island is like boot camp for creatives – the original course is still run from a converted prison. In fact it might be better to describe it as re-boot camp. The course aims by way of self discovery to let you think creatively about digital. Should be great.
Flash On The Beach: Brighton
Last up in September is the biggest UK Flash conference of the year. Flash On The Beach has a well deserved reputation as a fun and inspiring three days. I cover the con every year for FlashMagazine, but this will be my first time speaking. Blink and you’ll miss it as I’ll be covering 10 years of FlashMagazine in 3 minutes!
If there are tickets left I’d thoroughly recommend getting along. Despite the name, the sessions are not all about Flash. All creative technologies and media are represented and there’s a good mix of design and technical sessions. The end of day inspirational sessions are worth the entrance fee on their own.
