What I’m up to – podcasts, videos, speaking in UK, South Africa, US
March 5, 2013
We interrupt this blog for a brief commercial….. Been doing a lot of multimedia ranting recently, and have FP2P promo tours coming up in South Africa and the US, as well as UK. Here’s what I know is out there.
First up, I was subjected to a viva-like experience by Owen Barder, being grilled for an hour for his podcast Development Drums. The result is now out, either as an MP3 download, or as a transcript. Haven’t listened to it yet (there are limits, even to my self obsession), but I’ve heard good things about it and I certainly enjoyed it at the time – Owen had read the book carefully, and quickly got to the heart of some of the dilemmas it raises.
Then there’s been a spate of videos of different lengths. On Post2015, I’ve already linked to the IDS presentation, but there’s also a 3 minute pitch for schools. Filmed in a freezing Brixton cafe (so trendy it didn’t actually have a front wall), so I distracted myself by pulling silly faces. So of course they used it. Hey ho.
On the seemingly endless FP2P tour (c/o the hyperefficient Sarah Minty), here’s a typical presentation from last week at the University of East Anglia. IDS tomorrow, Sheffield on Thursday.
Then at the end of April, it’s Boston (29 April-1 May), New York (2-3 May) and Washington DC (6-9 May). Various things confirmed, but some spaces still left, so if anyone is interested in hosting a lecture in those cities let me know.
