One great point that resonated from this talk was - ‘stop copying each other’. Guilty as charged, but will try to be better.
Digital isn’t an end in itself, but a way of reaching the main goal - which is great user experience.
Beautifully delivered explanation of Aberdeen’s efforts to be better by raconteur Mike McConnell. Really frank and engaging talk with tons to think about. I’ve a feeling I’ll banging on about this one for a while.
The clever people at University of Kent talked about how they very quickly built a tour app.
A ton of things to think about from this long session - hence the pages of notes.
Brian’s welcome to the iwmw15 event, covering some of the key themes and setting the context - especially for lots of new attendees - which is good.
Richard always has very tasteful slides, and this was no exception. Luckily, he also had plenty of really interesting substance about how Bath’s content teams work too.
Fascinating talk by Mandy Phillips from Liverpool John Moores, where if anything she undersold just how much the team had managed to achieve. There was a palpable sense of envy when she talked about spending money :-)
Really useful session in iBeacons, and similar proximity based sensors. Discovered practical advice on real world problems.
Recently picked up this Isaac Asimov collection of four short stories, with this interesting sixties cover. I’m trying my technique of some post reading doodles to help my memory, and enjoyment. It was new to do short stories, and good to pause at the end to do a little drawing. I think I need to watch that I don’t try to illustrate the story, but instead take bits that will act as signposts for me.
