Media Futures Conference Alexandra Palace
Nipped over to London today bright and early (0430 am start) to take part in the MediaFutures Conference in Alexandra Palace. Around 250 academics, broadcasters and companies hotly debating the future of the media in a large tent tacked on to the "Palace" - birthplace of TV broadcasting. Amazing place - like a Hollywood set. More when I have a chance to digest my notes. The radio people within the BBC's Future Media Technology unit are definitely thinking out of the box.
