Digital Archaeology remembers Antirom, Noodlebox, Word.com, etc.
Internet Week Europe (7–11 November 2011) was, as one might expect, obsessed with the future, writes John Ridpath. Sessions included ‘the Future of Online Advertising’, ‘A Digital Future: Tackling Social Exclusion Through Technology’, ‘The Future of Ecommerce and Magento’, ‘The future is social commerce …’ and ‘Mobile – the Future of Publishing?’ At BERG’s excellent Tomorrow’s World session, visitors heard about the ‘near future’ of design (Karsten Schmidt), pop (Warren Ellis), citizen science (Fiona Romeo), toys (Alice Taylor), redesigning the planet (James Cascio), and more.
