Off to join the (R)evolution…

1st September 2011

Friday night should be a fun one… I will be making the switch from creative to geeky and heading out to Shropgeek for The Theory of (R)evolution.

The Theory of (R)Evolution is an event, run by Shropgeek, showcasing some of the most forward thinking ideas on the web today.

Last year was a huge success and this year is going to be bigger and better!

This years speakers include Chris Thorpe who has worked on projects as diverse as the video archives of Nobel Prize winners, putting contemporary art on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square and open data projects with the UK government. He will be talking about these fascinating projects.

Alex Hardie started his career in communications as a journalist. He spent 5 years as head of marketing at Virgin, before moving to San Francisco self-publishing company, Blurb, where he helped launch the brand across Europe.  As the director of How Do You Do, a digital marketing company he has a special interest in social media and how it can be used effectively.

Duncan Bloor who currently works for the BBC as part of their audience acquisition team and specialises in search engine optimization. Duncan will be shedding light on how to use search engine data to gain insights into your audience and create content they will want to read.

So will you be coming along? Held in the appropriately named Darwin Suite at The Prince Rupert Hotel, Shrewsbury, doors open at 6pm. Tickets are currently available at £25 – a bargain for what will be a fantastic night! Visit http://www.shropgeek-revolution.co.uk/tickets

What is great is that any further profit from the tickets after venue and marketing costs will be going to the British Heart Foundation in memory of Leu Thorn one of the founders of Shropgeek.

Well I am looking forward to getting into the spirit of things with a pint or two of real ale (that will be a revolutions in itself considering I am normally a Pinot Grigio girl).

So who else is coming along – let me know!
