Starting in five, we have a late lunch (to enable those in the US to join us, if they’re so inclined), we take another look at the past through the prism of history. I’m jointed by by Hiram Morgan of UCC From the Tudors who stand accused of being the first great propagandists of history, more…

Starting 1pm join us for #DigitalLunch on why Politicians lie… Plenty of links and stories at the event page on Google Plus, here. If you want to make a point in person, you can jump in but you will need to register with Google Plus first (easier than it sounds). See you soon…

#DigitalLunch: Why do politicians lie?

19 views

So, partly because of the huge success of Grillo in Italy on an anti politics ticket, and partly because its well passed the time when we ought to be asking such questions again this week’s #DigitalLunch will rather pointedly ask: Why do politicians lie? A couple of answers to that question so far: @mickfealty Voters more…

#Belfast2020: How can Belfast meet the new demands of the future?

2 views

Now, this is an online ‘event’ that was originally scheduled to take place in December. In fact when I look back at the first one we did on the subject of #Belfast2020, it looks somewhat quaint given what was to follow under the flags dispute. We already have some concrete themes for tomorrow’s debate. I’ve more…

#Belfast2020: Welcome to today’s #DigitalLunch…

I had a phone call earlier asking me what a digilunch was… Before I could answer the reply was, a colleague asked me and I told her it sounded like a bunch of people sitting at their computers banging on and eating sandwiches… To which my response was, yep that’s pretty much it!! Going live more…

#Belfast2020: What horses should Belfast hitch its future to?

2 views

Katheryn Torney’s excellent interviews in the Irish Times today asks some searching questions about the past. Daniel Jewesbury’s remarks are particularly revealing where he notes that over the last ten years “we have spent a lot of time hitching ourselves to the wrong horses.” In part, I suspect this is an inevitable downside to the more…

So, we’re rolling the next SocialInnovation #DigitalLunch for the Building Change Trust through to Thursday. It follows three other lively and insightful panels: – 1, was an initial discussion of what innovating for social change might look like? – 2, was a great conversational case study of a whole range of projects some originating the more…

Today’s #DigitalLunch asks what are the barriers to innovation? Not just in Northern Ireland, but generically. We go live at 1pm, with a rolling panel to discuss not just what the barriers but also how they may be got around. As ever, we’re looking for your questions for the panel to chew over. We already more…

#DigitalLunch: A Leap into Space(s)…

0 views

Today’s #DigitalLunch was one of the best so far… We started off with Baumgartner’s jump off from a great height into science, society, newspapers and their increased vulnerability to some good old fashioned marketing of some , the age of the engineer and science geek… And end up at the inevitable leap of political faith more…

Ever had a #DigitalLunch: Why not take a leap into a new space?

1 views

This week’s #DigitalLunch ‘jumps off’ from where on Herr Baumgartner’s sensational (in more ‘senses’ than one) leap into space lands… If you want to come along or just watch from your desktop (we don’t quite expect the 8 million Felix got, a few dozen would do us at this stage), you’ll be very welcome. I more…

#DigitalLunch today: Crashing systems…

3 views

We’ll have the live feed here up and running just before 1pm… to get an idea of what we mean by crashing systems, have a look at the event page over on Google Plus… All across the world, systems are crashing. In banking we’ve seen debt slicing and long haul internal systems like that of more…

Was 9/11 Television’s last great exclusive on a truly global event?

3 views

Last Friday’s #DigitalLunch was ostensibly about 9/11, and the effects it has had on society, or at least how society has changed in the meantime. Whether those changes were consequential or not is a moot point. Certainly in the realm of human communication technology and culture have never been more closely entwined. Blogs in 2001 more…

That is the title of today’s digital lunch… we’ve a great panel lined up for today at 1pm, including Gabrielle Laine-Peters, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, James Moffat and others… I’ll put the live feed up here closer to broadcast time. You can see Monday’s thread here… In the meantime what we’d really like is your questions… Put more…
