For anyone unfamiliar with the Tech on Trial format it is as follows.
- A topic is selected (on this occasion Digital Legacy)
- A legal professional from the partner company (for the next 3 sessions this is RotheraDowson) provides links to an minimum of 3 web articles, post or pages illustrating cases in law with outcomes, articles demonstrating best practice, or case studies who's outcome set precedent.
- Those links, often accompanied by a selection of resources are posted on the Tech on Trial blog.
- Anyone interested in attending then reads the articles, shares the post about the event with friends and signs up to attend.
- Everyone turns up having read the articles with an opinion, annecdote or question.
- The 'legal bod' (a Tech on Trial technical word!) briefly presents/introduces each article placing it in context of the topic
- We all moan and rage about technology (in context of the topic!), drink beverages of choice and consume biscuits and cake!
- All go home!
Well there it is in a nutshell.
When & Where
Technology on Trial
How about a Tuttle Club in Nottingham? @pcmcreative was asked one day via Twitter by @jobshareguru. @lloyddavis, founder of Tuttle Club suggested @pcmcreative as a contact point to get something going. They met, They thought, They drank coffee... there are already many networking events on the city why create another? Well.. Tuttle is a morning event, its a meet up with media making and social web analysis at it's heart. From this precept Technology on Trial at Nottingham's Galleries of Justice was born.
