Yesterday I went to this event organised by The Connection Factory and created by David Gauntlett (left) from the University of Westminster. It is about ‘Building Collaboration and Engagement for Media Professionals and Academic Researchers’.
The conference addressed how public service broadcasting has changed with the rise of the web to “provide ‘public service’ interactive media offerings, which may be commercial or non-commercial, and may be produced by charities, activists, academics, government, other organisations, and new or established companies”. Speakers included: Richard Deverell from BBC North, William Dutton from Oxford Internet Institute and Jude England from the British Library. The whole conference was recorded by Open Democracy and all the speakers presentations are available on their site.
For me the most interesting speaker was Dougald Hine from the School of Everything who gave a very insightful view of this subject. I’ve included his video below.
