What are you doing on 13th June?

If you're in London Town, you could do worse than head over to LSO St Lukes for the NMK Forum 07. Curated by Mike Butcher, it promises to be a day of discussion and debate around the new wave of innovation in the digital media industry. Leading industry figures (ahem, that includes me and pals Justin, Sam, Jemima and Alfie as well as luminaries such as Jason Calcanis of Weblogs fame and author and citizen media specialist Dan Gillmor) will talk about the future digital landscape online, offline and mobile (I'm on a panel entitled 'Communities, Commerce and Marketing' in the afternoon). There'll be a good turnout on the day if previous events are anything to go by so the knowledge and networking should be great, greatly enhanced by the unstuffy 'cabaret' layout thus enabling a proper conversation.

To book your, very reasonably priced ticket, go to Tickets are £345 and there's a reduced rate for students, not for profit organisations, employees of micro-companies and freelancers of £245. Money well spent I reckon.

And if you can't wait that long to hear me in action, then you'll have to follow me to Denmark where I'm speaking at "Knock Knock The Future of Music" Conference in Aarhus from Innovation Lab on 31st May (It's being held in English not Danish). You can download the PDF flyer here. If you're interested in music and the impact of digital media and innovation in that sector, then it's probably worth a trip. Not least because there's also a music festival on that weekend as part of the conference and exhibition programme. A mini, Danish SXSW maybe?

If you're going to be there and fancy meeting up, let me know. I'll be at the networking dinner on the Thursday evening and am planning to hang around for the weekend too to check out some of the music, all being well.


  1. That Danish event looks really interesting, pity I didn't hear about it sooner.

    As someone who creates music (or lyrics, in my case), I'm really keen to learn what I'm going to have to do if I still want to make money a few years from now!

  2. In that case Stuart, you may wish to join MusicTank -
    I was on a panel on one of their events a couple of weeks back and it was a really interesting debate about the role of MTV in the future digital world. And there was a lot of talk about digital rights, file sharing, revenue streams and the like. It was recorded as a podcast and if you pay up your subscription (I think i'ts UKP30), you get to listen to the podcasts and, if you ever head over to the UK, then you get discount access to events. There's also a ton of members-only resources on the site. Well worth a look I'd have thought.
    The event was written up here
    and the transcript is available for members.

  3. Sounds good, I'll take a look later. Thanks!
