How to be audience.

"Just be a delegate" was Marcus Romer's response when I discovered I had been gifted a ticket for this years ShiftHappens event when I asked what he would like from me.

Digital Media in the Commercial Sector

I’ve worked in the commercial sector for some years now. Priorities are often different from those in the funded arena (though perhaps increasingly less so). When you have investors breathing down your neck, understandably concerned about recouping their investment and demanding evidence of ROI, your focus has to be on spending every penny as effectively as possible.

It was another great event, as we all knew it would be. It seemed to me that the debate on technology, social media and the arts has moved on from where it was at Shift Happens 2009, there was much less dissent about the role it has to play, and, as more that one speaker said, it is no longer "what technology?", it is…

So it was with great interest that Microsoft this week rolled out Bing Entertainment, a dedicated hub within Bing that hosts film clips and trailers, music videos, TV clips and games Bing Entertainment is only live in the US at the… Continue
