  1. The Psychology of Creativity — Claire Rowland (Fjord London)

    A lot of hot air and expensive business consultancy time is sold in pursuit of facilitating creativity but the creative process is still thought of as a mysterious black box, often the preserve of certain people and not others. But what’s the actual science behind it? Are some of us more creative than others, and if so, why? What can all of us do to help ourselves have more and better ideas? This talk offers a brief introduction to the psychology of creativity.

  2. James Bridle — Wrangling Time: The Form and Future of the Book

    The internet has been around long enough now that it has a proper history, and it has started to produce media and artefacts that live in and comment on that history. James will be talking about his work with writing, books and wikipedia that hopes to explain and illuminate this temporal depth.

    James Bridle is a publisher, writer and artist based in London, UK. He founded the print-on-demand classics press Bookkake and the e-book-only imprint Artists’ eBooks, and created Bkkeepr, a tool for tracking reading and sharing bookmarks, and Quietube, an accidental anti-censorship proxy for the Middle East. He makes things with words, books and the internet, and writes about what he does at booktwo.org.

  3. VBUG Podcast 1 - Dave McMahon

    In our first ever Podcast we catch up with Dave McMahon, one of the fathers of UK Technical Podcasts. We felt it was fitting to start our podcasts with an interview with Dave and Tim and Andy took the chance to catch up with Dave at this year's VBUG Conference. We discuss Dave's presentations at the conference - Top 10 SQL Keywords and LINQ to XML, and we talk about the UK Community.

    N.B. Apologies for the high level of background noise in the recording.
