The Future of Text, Monday the 11th

The Future of Text was on Monday the 11th and Tuesday the 12th this week and I am very happy.

Day One was 10 min presentations and 5 min Q&A

This time it was hosted at the University of Southampton where I am studying for my PhD and there were quite a few of my colleagues this time, not just disparate people who come together for a day or two and then disperse.

I posted a series of pictures here: http://wordpress.liquid.info/future-of-text-2017-pictures/ and the speakers presentations are online at http://thefutureoftext.org/speaker-list.html. The videos will be up when available.
