I found my way to another Arthouse meetup via Victor . Unfortunately Victor was double booked and did not see the show, but not without delivering some of his friends to the scene. It was a packed house, at The State Theatre.
Here are the relevant links:
This was my blip on google+ with #sydcitytalks (mine were the only lonely 2 posts, but twitter was abuzz -- meh).
Chris Anderson at CityTalk The State Theatre
Chris speaks of city 2.0, with concepts originating from the grass roots, with examples of what global cities are experimenting with, noting our Clover's work.
I hate to say it but the narrative is cut and paste. Also creative output is a thing to be managed like other business blocks of an industry -- how corporate.
Chris could not stay to collaborate with the panel -- btw his narrative was different.
Nick Leeder, google, speaks of the importance of failure in a creative industry, against our backdrop of risk aversion.
The show finished with Laserman.
