Making Things Fast

November 29, 2010

Oh, blimey – accidentally on the WIRED website again. I need to get on a retainer. Anyway, this time it’s because I’m talking at the Oxford Geek Night this Wednesday and it’s on their giant calendar of geeky events. As I’m the only non-geek there, it’ll be the least geeky thing they’ve ever seen, but hopefully, possibly, some of it will be new. I’m going to be doing a quick rant about how and why you should make things fast.

I love Oxford, it’s my home town. It’s all a bit familar, and the buildings are cut from the same stone as my first primary school, all very honey-coloured and evocative. It’s a lovely place and it’s probably knee-deep in snow at the moment – just like that winter all those years ago, back in nearby Bicester, when I saw real snow for the first time and honestly thought it was going to keep falling until it reached my bedroom window.

Anyway – I’ll try to keep the reminiscing to a minimum on the actual night, and hope to see some of you there…
