It’s happened.  It’s over.  We’re all digital now.

Media production and media education have been transformed by the digital in the last ten years.  Back in 1998, Nicholas Negroponte predicted that “digital-ness” would just become part of the wallpaper: “Like air and drinking water, being digital will be noticed only by its absence, not its presence”.   But over a decade later, are we “postdigital” yet? This one-day symposium explored how digital technologies have redefined creativity and media practice within the academy both in terms of teaching and research, with a dynamic programme of presentations ranging from a QR Workshop, multiscreen film practice and locative media projects to discussions of creativity and pedagogy in the postdigital age.

A couple of tweets to give a feeling of the texture of the day (follow us @postdigi):

@CreativWltshr “first session @postdigi almost defining the magic of this medium blowing a kiss digitally”

@mikiie “I’ve discovered that I’m technostalgic at journal of media prac symposium Thanks#postdigi”

@ladydvorak “Thanks to everyone involved! I’ve left the JMP symposium feeling energised, challenged, inspired & determined. #postdigi

      Thanks for pointing this out! The date is actually on the call for papers – but I’ve added it to the front page where it would be much more useful! It’s Friday 24 June by the way. I hope you can make it.
