Videos from Thinking Digital 2012

After five years of the Thinking Digital Conference, we have amassed a sizeable library of some fabulous conference videos. This is the first in a series of highlighted talks in our archive and we’ll start by reviewing the most recent Thinking Digital in May 2012.

Wednesday Early Morning, 30 May 2012

What was it like to work with Steve Jobs? Ken Segall, the author of Insanely Simple gives some great insights about his time working with Apple and Steve Jobs in this opener to Thinking Digital 2012.

Professor Paul Watson has been hugely successful in advancing Newcastle University’s computing research agenda. In his talk here he highlights a small slice of the terrific work being done by the Social Inclusion in the Digital Economy (SIDE) Project.

Adrian Hon is a British new media hero. He details here how he successfully used Kickstarter to help finance the creation of Zombies Run - one the most critically and commercially successful iPhone games of its kind.

Sweden’s Magnus Lindkvist is a rock-star trendspotter. We have been trying to bring Magnus to Newcastle for years and he didn’t disappoint in his stand-out talk here about how to think about the future.           

We hope you like what you see and we will be promoting the next session’s talks soon.

Odimax who were one of the first Ignite100 teams, have created an infograhic from #TDC12 using data collected through their social media management tool. 
The infographic shows 10 interesting facts about #TDC12, including that probably unsurprisingly Twitter was the most active social media platform, and only 1% of people used Blackberry and 0.5% were in Windows.
