If I wasn't so busy at work, and if I were a bit more organised, I would definitely go to a lot more conferences. One such event being dConstruct, which took place last week.
My Twitter feed was going bonkers about it all weekend, especially the talk from James Bridle, of Short Term Memory Loss and booktwo. He spoke about time and memory, and digital culture's ability to flatten those things. To illustrate, he printed every single change made to the Iraq War page on Wikipedia since it appeared in 2004. It filled 12 volumes, just like an encyclopedia.
Check them out. Brilliant stuff.
