And that I did, at Doing It For The Kids. It went pretty well, I thought, although I can never tell if what I’m saying is interesting or just stating the bloody obvious. Hopefully it was interesting!
We spoke about far too much stuff to write up here, but there are some good insights in the audience’s Twitter stream, so that’s a good place to go if you want to catch up.
Next event is the UX Lunch next Wednesday, the 9th November, at the Adelphi. See you there!
Oh yeah, and if I looked like I had a really red face all the way through it’s because of the neon “BEER!” sign just behind my head that slowly roasted me over the hour-and-a-half long discussion…
Leeds Digital Festival, the annual celebration of all stuff digitalish and computery, is nearly upon us. It technically runs over November, but there’s all kinds of bits and bobs going on already.
Anyway, I’m going to be taking part in two panel debates as part of the festival – Doing it for the kids and the UX Lunch, which will hopefully be as tasty as it sounds.
Doing it for the kids is going to be all about digital development for children. We’ll be discussing the opportunities, challenges and pitfalls of creating content for the kids of today, and talking about how to get (and keep) their attention in a media-saturated world. The event is being held at Dock Street Market and is on Thuesday 3rd of November.
The UX Lunch, obviously, is all about User Experience and associated topics. I plan on holding forth about the difference between UCD and UX (which WILL be fascinating) and generally trying to make interesting words come out of my mouth. Unfortunately, to keep ticket prices down there isn’t actually any lunch, but there will be plenty of very clever people and me talking about the whats and wherefores of UX. That one’s at the Adelphi on Wednesday the 9th.
Hope to see you there!
