For the second year running, Jo Mangan and myself attended this wonderful conference in York, run by Pilot Theatre company. They did not disappoint. My brain is still spinning with ideas and inspiration.
The conference this year was run over two days, filled with speakers and more ideas that you had room to fit in your notebook. Check out there ‘NING’ community to see all the details or Pilot Theatre website for a breakdown of the speakers.
The highlights for me were:
www.thesanchoplan.com – a wonderful meld of music and live graphics
mediasnackers.com – a wonderful company that can explain much better than I can the web 2.0 developments that we need to pay attention to.
FriiSpray – a lovely little invention (open source)
www.dothegreenthing.com – because we in the Arts definitely need to.
http://kodhspace.com – a company that uses the wonderful world of online 3D to make collaboration global!!
