Technology in a cold climate – follow the seminar

I’m at the RSA today helping report a seminar on Technology in a Cold Climate … which is only indirectly about weather. It’s about how technologies can help us in hard time, with presentations on four papers:

  • one on technology’s application to delivering better and more cost-effective public services
  • one on the benefits of greater digital connectivity
  • one that looks at the potential of technology to transform society towards a more sustainable form
  • and one on the innovative behaviour that is essential to developing the kind of entrepreneurial action that we need

We’ll be starting with a keynote speech from Stephen Timms MP, Minister for Digital Britain, and here will be much tweeting and live blogging on that the further presentations and discussions from Paul Henderson and Steve Lawson, and I hope others in the 60-strong audience. I’ll be shooting some video. Do follow us on the project blog and through the Twitter tag #techcold
