Ideas Day

My blog posts are not always up-to-date or in chronological order…and this Ideas Day post is an example this.

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend the Ideas Day event at Dundee University as part of Product Design course. The event is an opportunity for the final year students to get input from industry on their projects. As ever the students work, even at this early stage, was well considered, thought provoking and showed great potential for some interesting outcomes.

At the end of the day we were invited to debate on interesting topics like the future of social media and what will product design be in 10 years.

On this years bill was:

Abigail Sellen (Microsoft Research)
Tim Regan (Microsoft Research)
Richard Banks (Microsoft Research)
Tim Brook (Nokia Research)
Steve Birnie (NCR)
Charlie Rohan (NCR)
Bill Gaver (Goldsmiths)
Chris Speed (Edinburgh College of Art)
Kenny Anderson a.k.a. King Creosote (Fencecollective).
