I'm looking forward to tomorrow's (12th June 2008) DesignIT 2008 Roundtable discussion. Neville Hobson's blog post titled blog as an art form at DesignIT 08 describes the event really well.
I'm taking a Microsoft RoundTable device with me as a creative means of recording both the audio and video of the discussion itself - I'll publish it online via my blog assuming each of the speakers are happy for me to do so - the recording will be released some time after Stephen Prichard's podcast covering the event. As you can see in my earlier post titled Microsoft RoundTable a cool way to collaborate by video the recording will include a panoramic view of the room together with a window that will highlight the active speaker.
The roundtable will be comprised of the following people:
The idea behind the debate is to engage both the art and technical communities in a constructive discussion around the use of new media.
If you'd like to join the discussion remotely both to pick up the key points and to contribute your own input then try following the live twitter feed which is being run by the organisers bearing in mind that the discussion is scheduled to take place between 13:30 and 15:00 British Summer Time (GMT + 1).
As I mentioned in my earlier post DesignIT: a mashup of charity, art and technology we held a debate
