  1. RSA - How to Face the Digital Future Without Fear

    It is impossible to separate the digital world from the one that we now live in. The internet affects every aspect of our lives – our society, our culture, our economy and our politics - and we all need to know how it works, what it can do, and what it will do in the future.

    Editor-at-Large for ‘Wired’ magazine, David Cameron’s ambassador to Tech City and guru of the digital age Ben Hammersley visits the RSA to demystify the internet, decode cyberspace, and guide us through the innovations of the incredible revolution we are all living through.

    Explaining the effects of the changes in the modern world, and the latest ideas in technology, culture, business and politics, Ben Hammersley will reveal this decade’s big social and technological trends, and how they intersect.

  3. HotHouse Podcast: Mobile First « The HotHouse Blog

    Simon van Wyk caught up with Lucas Challamel, Director Business Development ANZ, from Netbiscuits to further discuss exactly what mobile first means for businesses and brands. The pair discusses how businesses can adopt a mobile first approach to ensure that content is always perfectly optimised for the appropriate device whether it’s a smartphone or tablet device as well as a desktop computer.

    They also touch on interesting new research from Google,who recently teamed with Sterling Brands and Ipsos to study the media habits of 1,611 people across the US and found that that sequential screening is common. In their study, smartphones were the most common starting point for many online activities, before users moved on to a PC, and some still to a tablet to complete the activity the same day.

  5. The Digital Future

    On Start the Week Andrew Marr looks into the digital future. Nick Harkaway dismisses fears of a digital dystopia in which distracted people, caught between the real world and the screen world, are under constant surveillance. He believes we need to engage with the computers we have created, and shape our own destiny. Simon Ings is the editor of a new digital magazine, Arc, which uses science fiction to explore and explain what the future might hold for society. While Anab Jain’s design company uses scenarios and prototypes to probe emerging technologies and ideas, from headsets to help the blind to see, to everyday objects with their very own internet connection. And Charles Arthur investigates the battle for dominance of the internet with Apple, Google and Microsoft struggling to stay on top, and asks what that means for the rest of us.

    Start The Week sets the cultural agenda for the week ahead, with high-profile guests discussing the ideas behind their work in the fields of art, literature, film, science, history, society and politics.

  8. Adactio: Articles—Of Time And The Network

    A presentation about history, networks, and digital preservation, from the Webstock conference held in Wellington, New Zealand in February 2012.

    Our perception and measurement of time has changed as our civilisation has evolved. That change has been driven by networks, from trade routes to the internet. Now that we have the real-time web allowing instantaneous global communication, there’s a danger that we may neglect our legacy for the future. While the web has democratised publishing, allowing anyone to share ideas with a global audience, it doesn’t appear to be the best medium for preserving our cultural resources: websites and documents disappear down the digital memory hole every day. But we can change that. This presentation will offer an alternative history of technology and a fresh perspective on the future that is ours to save.
