If platforms (as we know them) are dead, then this is the wake and you’re invited. We’ll gather together to commemorate the death of platforms as we know them and to ponder what the future might hold.
Mark Polson and Mike Barrett from the lang cat will kick things off by conducting a live post-mortem for platforms, probing in some graphic detail the ways in which they’ve passed over – and what they need to do for their next incarnation.
After that it’s time to look to the future, and we have three fantastic guest speakers to help us get over our collective loss. This is all about getting beyond the platform basics, and building for a future industry which will – whatever it holds – look radically different to anything we’ve dealt with before.
If that doesnâ??t work there will also be BOOZE. We haven’t decided about LITTLE SAUSAGE ROLLS yet. You can send us a note.
You can also help shape the wake playlist by tweeting your song selections on #platformsaredead.
