As others see our future?

This morning has been a whirlwind tour through views of what may be important building blocks in the Digital Economy. It started with Sebastian Conran deconstructing the aspects of design that made things valuable. He was followed by Alan Newell talking about digital exclusion - with a particular emphasis on the exclusion of the older members of society. Next came Bronwyn Kunhardt, who talked about semantic searching and the problems of language. She was followed by Richard Halkett who gave a slightly scary review of how the education system probably wasn't right for the future and Simon Phipps, who proselytized on behalf of open source. Then we got to eat lunch!!!
