Even an analogue person like me can be fascinated by the new multi-channel, user-generated, community-based, digital world that is appearing all around. The session prompted far more questions than answers for me (which is great) and on my return to the office I asked my team to think about how we should use Twitter, Social Networking and User-generated content to chart a course for TD into the brave new world!
In addition I made lots of new contacts and discussed a number of exiting collaborations, if just one comes off it will repay my time in Newcastle ten-fold.
A round-up post after the recent events.
Thank you to all those who have already posted your ideas to our space on UserVoice. Please keep them coming! However, we need to provide better support / prompting with this tool :$.

Jack Pickard has blogged about ‘Where do you thing you’re going’….you can see his write ups at http://www.thepickards.co.uk/index.php/blog/….
Well, that was one really great day – we enjoyed it and we really hope you enjoyed it too, whether you were there physically or virtually, and found it an exciting, different, innovative and thought-provoking event!
Mega-mega-thanks to all of you who attended, who presented, who provided demonstrations, who blogged, tweeted, or commented on proceedings, those who moved tables, chairs, stands, food’n’drink, boats(!), those who distributed labels, made badges, put up directional signs and a lot, lot more.
Your contributions will prove invaluable to the final SIMM report and will help shape the future of Digital Transport for a Digital Britain. Hopefully we all are a bit more clearer as to ‘where we are going…’ now!
