EVENT: wuthering bytes, a festival of technology

Technology festival Wuthering Bytes is happening again this year at Hebden Bridge and I am privileged to be a speaker there on the final day, Friday October 2nd.

CHI 2014

[Photo from my demo table. Thank you so much if you were one of the people who came to talk with me, it was such an amazing experience!]

Today is the last day of the CHI conference  and I have had an amazing experience.

Great to watch a demo of Google Glass, with Thad Starner... I think this was them taking a photo - so I'm taking a photo of being in a photo.
