Andy Stanford-Clark, one of IBM’s 23 “master inventors”, took time out from his programme of relentless innovation to speak to David Rowan, the editor of Wired UK magazine at TEDGlobal 2009.
Among many other things, Stanford-Clark explained how he hooked up Twitter to the Isle of Wight ferry, so that he would never miss the boat.
This past July, TEDGlobal returned to Oxford for a now-annual conference. Four days of inspired thinking looked beyond the obvious, at the hidden forces shaping our future, at the mysterious functioning of things, at the invisible and at the not-yet-discovered. At TEDGlobal 2009, a roster of powerful speakers and performers explored The Substance of Things Not Seen.
