  • Loved the event, it was great. Lots of nice touches including the found slides, and sweets and baggs of random electronic components,
    thanks

    • It was our best event yet. It really helped having such a great venue and Lovebytes as partners. Glad you loved the goody bags they take a surprising amount of time and effort. Maybe we can have someone from transitlab down to talk at the next one?

  • Emma says:

    Last years We Love Technology was a turning point for me, in terms of the way I think about the web and what the associated technologies can be used for. I particularly enjoyed Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino’s presentation (Tinker.It) and The Owl Project’s iLog. It was great to see some people I know speaking and also some that I’ve wanted to see for years – and right on my doorstep in Sheffield, in such a fantastic venue – and all for £20. I have two questions: Will there be another one? And why do you think there were so few female components involved (speaking and watching)?

    • Hi Derek, Glad you liked it. I always struggle to get women to come along and talk. In my experience men seem much happier to talk to a crowd and women better on panels, leading workshops often favouring conversation over oration but not always. I always try to have an equal representation. It gets easier every year though with more daily activity being commited to documentation and self reflexion/promotion and obviously as time moves on with technology thankfully becoming less of a male dominated realm.

      I am poised to do another WLT but this year may be difficult as funding has become a major issue for the arts.

      Thanks for your great feedback.
