Charles and I were both asked to speak at Nesta’s City as a Platform event (subtitled The Future for the Creative Industries)  at Aston University Business School and Conference Centre.

It’s not about data.

Jon Kingsbury started the day with some interesting facts about how we might work our way through the current economic difficulties.

Toby speaking.

I did a talk firstly on how we work with data, TFL, and STS. and then wandered around my ideas on the connected city and the need for more service design for people using cities.  I had 5 mins to prepare after Jon asked me to change my tack, so wrote most of my talk on the stage.

Charles, Haidee and Simon.

I have uploaded the slides to slideshare here.

And there was some great liveblogging from Chris at Meshed Media.
