Event: Beyond the iPad

On Thursday 8 July BIG POTATOES, in partnership with spiked and in association with Epoch, is taking part in the debate Beyond the iPad: What IT and telecoms could do for innovation, productivity and the economy in central London.

The debate starts from the observation that  IT and telecoms are two of society’s greatest tools for advancement, and not just out of the present economic crisis. We will ask if, after the indecisive UK election, we can be decisive about setting an agenda for IT and telecoms for the next decade and realising more of its potential across society.

Speaking are Alan Patrick of Broadsight (and BIG POTATOES co-author), Peter Cochrane of Cochrane Associates, BT Chief Scientist JP Rangaswami, and Daily Telegraph consumer technology editor, Matt Warman. spiked managing editor Helene Guldberg will be in the chair.

The event is previewed  on spiked based in a piece based on quotes form the speakers: What’s the future for innovation? Tim Black, spiked, 7 July 2010.
