So today we want to talk about Belfast in 2020… or rather not so much that (as one wit on Slugger’s Facebook page notes, we’ll need a Tardis for that).. But what we need to protect social goods at a time when public budgets are being marked down….

Today’s ‘lunch’ was with +Peter Dornan+Paul Roberts and +Glenn Jordan… Highlights include…

The importance of getting FabLabs out in the community…

“Hellooo Daddy…”

“There is no future for us that relies purely on economic growth…”
