Hello!

Three interesting updates for you today, starting off with...

HDLive

I'm delighted to say that we've just finalised the line up of speakers and I promise, you will love the people who are going to be coming to talk to us on November 1st! World authorities on the digital world focusing on how we can use the web and technology to drive economic and business success. (I still cannot believe the line up every time I read it through!).

We're finishing off the main website and will be looking to launch this, announce the speakers and start selling the tickets at the beginning of June.

If you haven't signed up to be alerted when tickets go on sale (and the early bird ones), then you should do now!

Cloud Camp North

“CloudCamp is an unconference where early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies exchange ideas. With the rapid change occurring in the industry, we need a place we can meet to share our experiences, challenges and solutions. At CloudCamp, you are encouraged you to share your thoughts in several open discussions, as we strive for the advancement of Cloud Computing. End users, IT professionals and vendors are all encouraged to participate.”

The Leeds event is happening on the 14th June, and you can click here now to read all about it. If you're on Twitter, then look up Paul Miller (@PaulMiller).

Windows 8 - Metro vs Desktop

The latest post on Hull Digital is from Simon Hudson and he's written an excellent article on Metros vs Desktop...

"Of course it’s different – that’s the point, it now includes touch elements and a new interface.
Of course it isn’t intuitive – no man machine interface is."

What do you think, have you used either one? Do comment!

Best wishes,

Jon Moss
