This is a rarely-updated blog at the best of times, but right now, its virtually derelict. Here’s one reason why – I’m launching the second programme of BBC Innovation Labs at the moment, starting tomorrow in Brighton (home town!).
We’ve enlarged the scope of the Labs, so we now have four events, covering Scotland, North England, South England and London, and have more briefs set by commissioners across the BBC, inlcuding News, Sport, Drama & Entertainment, Radio 1 and Nations & Regions. So i’ve spent most of this summer trying to get 10 regional agencies and 8 BBC departments to work together on the same project. As a result, i’ve got 13 launch days in different cities around the UK to run in the next 4 weeks.
I’ll need a damn good break come xmas….
