Google Big Tent

So, tomorrow I'm off to Google's Big Tent event at The Grove and it looks set to be a great day, just take a look at the agenda at the bottom of the page.

From a work perspective, I'm looking forward to the morning sessions as both touch on projects I am involved in; "Porn: how to keep our children safe online" and "Copyright in the Digital Age". That being said, the afternoon session should be fascinating; "The future of News" and "Good or Evil: Has the social revolution enhanced or diminished our society". I'll be tweeting live from the event, so follow me here to keep up to date @pmrourkie.
