There are times when I hate not living in London and yesterday was one of them. Us Now was screening at the RSA and I really wanted to see it. Here is a trailer. Blurb from the makers here too.
The film looks at the power of mass
collaboration, government and the internet and features interviews and clips from the likes of Clay Shirky – author of Here Comes Everybody and Matthew Taylor – chief exec of the RSA.
Just signed up to go and see it at NESTA next week so will post my thoughts then.
I saw a tweet from Robin Bloor last week, quoting a well known saying and it struck a chord with me.
His tweet was, “a candle loses nothing by lighting another candle” and I feel that this has never been truer than today, due to the collaborative spirit and willingness to help that I am seeing spread across our industry.
So yes it is a bit fromage-tastic but it sums it all up for me and surely the more candles that are lit, the lighter and brighter the whole room becomes.
*no more cheesy posts, I promise*
