  1. Simon Schama’s World View

    http://onpoint.wbur.org/2011/04/13/simon-schamas-world-view

    Simon Schama is a brilliant thinker and writer on a very wide palette of human affairs. Revolutions: French and Egyptian. Leaders: from Churchill to Obama. Art: from Dutch masters and Rubens to Martin Scorcese and Richard Avedon. Life: from ocean crossings to the joys of ice cream.

    He’s a scholar, historian, big-picture narrator — and a free-thinker who can link the far flung pieces of what has been and what is right now. With everything going on today, we could use that voice, that mind.

    This hour On Point: a conversation on a world in turmoil with Simon Schama.

  2. Maps, Books, Spimes, Paper: Post-Digital Media Design

    The Internet is situated in the real world, and interesting experiences have to blend physical and digital. Mixing new technology - Arduinos, GPS, RFID, QRcodes - and old (web, paper), we present examples of the recently possible future, and the lessons we’ve learnt. And we’ll make something along the way.

  3. Materialising and Dematerialising A Web of Data. (Or What We’ve Learned From Printing The Internet Out)

    What’s happening now is that the web of data wants to escape the screen, it wants to materialise into the real world, it wants to get physical, become objects. And that the next exciting stuff is going to be about designing data that can live on the screen, in devices, on paper, as things, wherever.

    So that’s what I’m hoping to talk about. About getting a little post-digital, about analogue friction, about printing to large industrial infrastructures, about unproducts and letter-boxes and rabbits. And there’ll be jokes and silly videos too.

    Russell was born in Derby, enjoyed an uneventful childhood, did college, all that. After failing as a popstar and a joke writer he ended up in advertising and tried to do ‘interactive marketing’ way before anyone was interested. Ended up at Wieden + Kennedy working on clients like Microsoft, Nike and Honda. Then he went to work for Nike as Global Consumer Planning Director.

    He went freelance in 2006 and works with shadowy organisations like the Open Intelligence Agency and the Really Interesting Group. He also writes eggbaconchipsandbeans occasionally organises ‘Interesting’ conferences, plays with things like speechification, dawdlr and slowpoke and does columns for Campaign magazine and Wired UK.

    If asked what he actually does all day, he’ll normally mutter something about ‘post-digital’.

  7. The Wire’s David Simon - KQED’s Forum

    "The Wire" creator David Simon calls his critically acclaimed HBO series "a political tract masquerading as a cop show." In this political year, we talk with Simon about the presidential election, the state of journalism and the war on drugs — as well as about his recent HBO miniseries on Marines in Iraq, "Generation Kill." Simon is also author of books including "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets" which inspired the Emmy Award-winning television program of the same name.
