Nine years ago me and a couple of friends recorded the first episode of In Our Own Time about Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
And now it’s time for episode two.
This one’s about the Internet of Things and it features the legendary Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino and the estimable Matt Webb.
Huge thanks to Ann Scantlebury for making the audio quality of episode two considerably better than episode one.
Tomorrow I’ll post a bunch of links, updates and apologies to all the people we missed out but, for now, please have a listen. It’s about 40 minutes.
Twittering plants? A plastic parrot informing you about traffic jams? In his keynote speech at NEXT Berlin 2012, Russell Davies humorously and cleverly illustrates his idea of what will be next: the network of things, which will irrevocably change the way we use technologies and the purposes we use it for. Davies’ post-digital world is a “making world” in which people use networked things to produce analog objects – personalised and on demand.

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.
This week we are joined by Russell Davies (the author and organiser of the Interesting conferences) and discover that he was once in a band.
We also hear from Karen (wife and nightly documenter of the infamous Sleep Talkin’ Man) and eat some festive snacks with Dave Green.
