"Don’t think by any means it was a total waste; Bob Marchant of Modo, Ben Terrett of Really Interesting Group, and John Hoke of Nike were standouts who had a unique take on DIY, placed their work in a larger context, and left the audience with learnings or ideas that could affect their own work"

Archives & Open data | The HighWire
Open data & archives have been on my mind this week. Starting with a HighWire talk with the BBC we spoke of ‘perceptive media’, ‘object orientated media & production’ and ‘holodecks’ (kid you not). Here we spoke of the challenges and possibilities of opening and managing the now vast BBC archives. This was followed by tales of an adventure by RIG to HSBC archives, interesting finds from the banking sector and not at all what you would expect. Finally today, an open data workshop today with Julian Tate & Gerd Kortuem.

And Phil and Matt and Chris and Alex and everyone at BERG and you know who you are. Honoured to know you."

Lord of the Logos, Christophe Szpajdel | Logo Design Love
"I first thought it was for a band called RIG and thought oil rig. I asked Ben Terrett for as much detail as possible and he was fairly laconic in what he wanted. I digged a bit more and found out he loves AC/DC as lettering, so i created a very simple logo. After that, I got a lot of interest, and this is how i met you, Blair, and even more interesting is that you just live next door to me! How cool is that?"

"the World Association of Newspapers has recommended these be a part of newspapers’ attempts to stay relevant: Newspapers could create as many niche products as they want, which can be distributed in many ways: electronically via email, in pdf format, printed at home, or distributed as an insert to a traditional newspaper. The idea is to build many ultra-niche products.”
