The Big Technology Trial
At this stage the tickets have no charge associated with them. Sign up is free. Once the 100 mark is reached and I can confirm the affiliation of the legal firm the tickets will be £12 and those who have signed up will get first access to tickets.
I had a conversation recently with a previous legal firm who had been affiliated with Technology on Trial when its was conceived and tried in 2011.
Was I planning any further events?
I'd love to, I replied. But without funding I continued, I was unable to put the required attention on the event that was necessary to create a successful and fulfilling event.
Find a larger audience and we will would be interested was the response.
Really? Cool. What sort of audience numbers are we talking I asked.
After watching Don't Blame Facebook on Channel 4 on 22nd July 2013 I found myself thinking. Could I crowdsource the audience?
Well this is the call...
Do you want to attend an 1 day TEDx style event with a serious focus on the pitfalls of social media with a light hearted reflection and story telling component where you confess just how close you have come to digital doom or share annacdotes of gaffs you have spotted? Great local, national and fingers crossed international speakers too.
It's always been important to me that the smaller events had a legal affiliate to prevent apocryphal hyperbole, to dispell mythology and provide an authorative legal insight.
The date, at this point is provisional as there are speakers I have in mind and thier calendars may shift the date.
This is the first 'big trial' origonating from the monthly Technology on Trial gatherings.
More info to come soon.
The origonal blog site was on Posterous which no longer exists but a couple of the Trial Virdict Reports were on Storify
