What is 'Digital'?

The word 'Digital' seems to be being used a lot in government at the moment; increasingly it is appearing in team names, job titles and... well... conference topics.

This is an unconference-style More Tea Vicar event to explore what is meant by 'Digital'.

For many, its meaning has gone beyond what even the 21st Century version of the Chambers Dictionary defines as 'digital' - see this, for example, on Digital Public Management by (a founder MTVer) Jerry Fishenden.

Some think of it as a mindset of change. Some a nascent buzzword. Some the next IT industry opportunity. Some the opposite of 'Big IT'. And most of everyone else, something vaguely to do with computers.

This is an opportunity to meet and converse with a genuinely diverse, interesting group of people. To share ideas, to develop new ones and, if you want, to co-create something tangible that will be of use to you the following day. (In particular, some GDS folk have said they are interested in coming along to get ideas on practical stuff to do with enabling change.)

Whatever happens there will be absolutely no presenting, pitching or powerpointing.

Given the prominence of the idea of 'Digital', perhaps it's worth taking some time to talk about what it means?

If you agree, come for tea.

(And, if you have time, a drink afterwards.)
