Brighton Digital Festival - BBC Click

Gareth Mitchell and Bill Thompson travel to the south coast of England for the first ever Brighton Digital Festival.

It is an event that brings together hackers, digital artists and technophiles to explore the realms of digital technology.

Hackers from a Mini Maker Faire demonstrate how they have repurposed various bits of old gadgetry.

Click also hears from Honor Harger one of the organisers of the festival about the big questions that are being posed about our information society and where it is all going.

Aral Balkan from Update joins the discussion to reflect on how companies need to make the various gadgets and digital tools more attractive for us to use.

And there is a report on the plethora of digital art at the festival including the internationally renowned Blast Theory and Katy Connor’s Pure Flow.
