Digital 2013 – AKA #DigiConX

Digital2013 - Fireside Chat
Well I’ve yet to manage to write up a proper review of my day at the SECC on Thursday, and it’s now rather late on Sunday night. My list of things to do is far too long to allow me to go over the event several days later in any great detail.

That said, I can tell you that it was my third visit to Digital conference. Every one of them has been good, but each one grows on the previous year. This year well over 400 people attended (either in the room or via the webcast). The speakers for the most part were very interesting. Several of them had some pretty interesting stats to go with their presentations.

I did find it rather ironic (moronic) that every single presentation that I saw was done in PowerPoint (yawn. How passe!).

Perhaps having worked at NSDesign where every presentation we deliver is in Prezi – that I am now a little spoiled and more than a little biased. Software aside, as I say, many of the presentations did manage to be good and some were even thought-provoking.

I came away having made some new connections that I will no doubt develop as time goes by. I might have even got a client or two as a result. So if you get the chance to go next year, then by all means, take the opportunity.

And my dear friend (and fellow Yank) Ashley has curated a page of the Highlights of Digital 2013 that you should check out.
