Talking about Conversational Internet

Friday, November 30th, 2012

I’ve written about some of the talks at Everybody Technology which was an event about how to make technology inclusive.

I gave a short talk there, too. It was about my Conversational Internet project. I’ve written about it a few times already now, so I won’t rehash it here, but I talked about the Extreme Blue prototype and some of the work that’s been done since.

Luckily for fans of funny voices everywhere, it was recorded.

Everybody Technology : Conversational Internet


Everybody Technology

This afternoon I went to Everybody Technology, an event to discuss the need for technology to be inclusive and made in a way that is “so smart, so simple and so powerful it works for everybody”.

A highlight of the afternoon was Stephen Hawking – perhaps one of the best examples of the power of technology to enable someone to reach their potential. He also supported the event by lending his voice to a promotional video which explains the idea better than I can.

There were several speakers. I won’t do them justice, but I did jot a few notes…
