The next NMK Beers & Innovation on 30th March is now sold out.
Here’s the finishing touches to the cake.
User generated content is the theme and on this occasion citizen media and UGC-based business models will be up for discussion.
Providing the solid foundation of the sandwich upfront – the speakers.
Folks who have booked will hear from Richard Sambrook, Director of the BBC’s Global News Division. Richard will talk about how the BBC is engaging innovatively with user created content and the broader repercussions of citizen media for mainstream media and reporting – a particular interest of his.
Paul Youlten of Yellowikis will talk about the day-to-day realities of user-provisioned information systems as well as the strengths and weaknesses of community based projects.
And then comes the tasty filling – the speakers will take questions and have a good chinwag with the assembled crowd. All ably assisted by our chair Jo Twist – Senior Research Fellow and Team Leader, Digital Society and Media at the IPPR. Thanks Jo!
The icing on the cake – some free beers and a chance to mingle afterwards.
The next Beers & Innovation is in April. We’re keping it micro-sized as this seems most conducive to good discussion. So if you’re thinking you might like to come along, keep your eyes peeled.
NB. For those who came to B&I 1 on 9th February please note the venue has changed! See here for details.
