Ben Hammersley Keynote Presentation — The flower, the field and the stack
This talk by the Prime Minister’s Ambassador to Tech City was recorded at Web Directions South 2012. It’s about the interconnectedness of all things, or finding compassion in TCP/IP. Just set aside 50 minutes and watch it. It’s awesome :)
Like what you see? Want a piece of the action next time around? Then get along to Web Directions South in Sydney October 24 and 25 2013.
About the presenter, Ben Hammersely
Ben Hammersley is the Prime Minister’s Ambassador to Tech City, but don’t hold that against him. He’s really quite a fascinating and charming gent and not at all a smarmy politician.
When he’s not running marathons in the Sahara desert, Ben is a writer, broadcaster and journalist. He reports on the effects of the internet on society, foreign policy, business, and culture …not just on his blog either; his writing has appeared in proper dead-tree publications like The Times, The Guardian, and Wired UK (where he is Editor at Large).
