Nine months, Politics + digital transformation, Democracy Club, Liberty, Interesting


Somehow, 9 months have gone by since I last posted here. Not quite sure how that’s happened.

Since February, and for the past 6 months, I’ve had my head down working on a transformation project, focussing on politics and digital. The work has been through discovery and into alpha, with a small but brilliant team based in London. There’s a lot  we’ve learned, prototyped and built in that time. I hope to be able to talk more about the work soon. In the meantime, I’m taking a little break before the next piece of work.

Elsewhere since January, I went to Nesta’s Digital Cultural Panel event in January, and wrote about my take away from the event.

I went to Eames exhibition at the Barbican in February, with the marvellous Musical Tower – a gravity powered xylophone with moveable keys.

In May, I went to a Democracy Club event, on the wrap up of the May elections and what happens next. One point that struck me was the top 5 Google searches on election day:

-A fascinating takeaway on user needs around voting and democracy.

The Liberty AGM event was in June with new director, Martha Spurrier. It was a full day of debates and discussions, and a reminder of the the good, important work Liberty is doing around the Human Rights Act.

 

Okay. I think that’s just about all caught up.

Later this week I’m going to Interesting at Conway Hall. See you there?
