I woke myself from a dream this morning. I was at a larger, different version of Mum and Dad's place in Belair. There was a congregation building, and I was rushing to prepare to give a talk.
The main people I can remember arriving were my immediate family, but also a gaggle of Corinthians - the choir my parent sang with for 30 years, throughout my youth. I thought Dad had told me that I was to talk casually for 15 minutes, but then I was horrified to learn that I was to give a 55 minute presentation. The audience wasn't particularly technical, and I hadn't prepared anything, and it was 10:13, and I was on in twenty minutes. Cal popped by to recall that he always tried to "tread English", whatever that means.
I racked my brain for things to talk about, with no hope of getting to a computer - I hadn't even showered yet. I could talk about why I left home, I suppose. Or, how GNE started. Or...
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
