  2. The Culture Of Gaming, Episode 1

    Aleks Krotoski examines how computer gaming is affecting our culture – by creating genuine works of art, by altering our notions of storytelling, and by simple virtue of being the cultural medium many people spend most time attached to.

    Computer or videogames have been around for 40 years, but the wider cultural implications have tended to be glossed over in favour of discussion of the size of the gaming economy and concerns about games’ social impact.

    Yet in recent years the artfulness of games has grown so much that the Smithsonian in Washington DC is now hosting a major exhibition of gaming art.

    New technology and the spread of games to phones, tablets and PCs are creating millions of new users.

    The immersive possibilities of this uniquely-interactive medium are just being explored.

  3. BBC - Podcasts - Four Thought: Russell M. Davies 21 Sept 2011 on Huffduffer

    Four Thought talks include stories and ideas which will affect our future, in politics, society, the economy, business, science, technology or the arts. Recorded live, the talks are given by a range of people with a new thought to share.

    After the internet and social media, what will be the next technological revolution? Writer, blogger and social entrepreneur Russell M. Davies argues that like the early days of blogging, we are about to witness another flowering of individual creativity. This time, he says, it will unleash "all sorts of interesting gadgety things", and determine our relationships with them. "It’s about making your own stuff, which might be a bit silly and a bit trivial and pointless, but you get the satisfaction of making it yourself," he says. This revolution in individual gadgetry - and designing our relationship with them - will prove "exciting, radical, life-affirming stuff". Four Thought is a series of talks which combine thought provoking ideas and engaging storytelling. Recorded in front of an audience at the RSA in London, speakers take to the stage to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society.

  5. Outriders 15/02/2011: Histories, stories and current tales

    Hello Outriders,

    We had a busy week on the Outriders podcast - so much so, that three of us put it together.

    First up Andrew Back has been to a meeting of the Open Source Hardware User Group. He caught up with people who were speaking at the event which looked at education and was based at the BBC this time. Creators of the Domesday Project, BBC Computer Literacy and Arduino described how we can learn from past experience when it comes to matching technologies with teaching.

    Following this, Mark Spoffoth of newly app-launched LoveFresh made us all hungry by talking about his obsession with fresh food and relationships with producers. Do you know where you can get produce from a farmer locally? LoveFresh may be able to help.

    Friend of Outriders, Joseph Tame returns to us - this time with a new challenge. You may recall that last time he was headed up Mount Fuji with plans to live stream the experience via his phones. This time - he’s taking us all with him online as he takes on the Tokyo Marathon. Slightly mad, I’m sure you will agree - but the sort of mad that we love on Outriders. Last but never least Original Outrider Chris Vallance also joined us this week, he’s been chatting to author Nick Harkaway - creator of the City of Urm. If you can imagine a place made up of the tweets of different writers - you’d be heading in the right direction to find others who inhabit this fantastic city.

    Remember, if there is a site that you would like to know more about, or if you are making something cool related to the web, then do let us know. You can email me at Outriders at bbc dot co dot uk, send a tweet on Twitter or search for Outriders on Facebook and catch up with the updates in your newsfeed.

  8. Confessions of a Crap Artist

    Philip K Dick is now world famous, thanks to films like Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report.

Writer Ken Hollings asks: was it Phil’s fault God talked to him or was it God’s?

    Broadcast on Monday 16 January 2006, 20:30 on BBC Radio 4.

  9. Dan Hill — Closing keynote: 15 years in

    Web Directions South 2009, Sydney Convention Centre, October 9 4.05pm.

    It is time for the prac­tice of web devel­op­ment and design to broaden its hori­zons. How can the skills and expe­ri­ence we’ve acquired over the last 15 years of work­ing on the inter­net be applied more broadly to, say, the design of cities, build­ings, organ­i­sa­tions, gov­ern­ment and so on?

    In a slightly fool­hardy, ambi­tious talk, Dan will draw from his expe­ri­ence of lead­ing design across the BBC’s web­sites, co-​​founding the global media prod­uct Monocle, work­ing with projects like Lonely Planet, Channel 4, Urbis museum and the Spice Girls web­site, and now his cur­rent work with the mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary design con­sul­tancy Arup, where he helps design bet­ter cities, build­ings and streets.

    Dan will sug­gest that some of these core ideas — har­ness­ing user-​​centred think­ing with the sparks of indi­vid­ual insight, work­ing with real-​​time data, sep­a­rat­ing con­tent from pre­sen­ta­tion, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary design-​​centred prac­tice, enabling adap­ta­tion and hack­a­bil­ity, bal­anc­ing top-​​down inter­ven­tion with bottom-​​up emer­gence, amongst oth­ers — might work effec­tively as core prin­ci­ples of ser­vice design, offer­ing new ways to build, design, inno­vate and oper­ate to ser­vices, prod­ucts and organ­i­sa­tions well out­side of the Australian web industry’s tra­di­tional focus.

  10. On The Map 5: The Lie of the Land

    There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and then there are maps. Borders can be moved and countries expanded, shrunk or even left off the map altogether. We’d like to believe that maps are a purely factual representation of the world with no bias or agenda, but in fact every cartographer decides what to include on their map and what to exclude. Mike Parker discovers how maps can be used as tools of power, politics and propaganda.
