Dr Lorraine Warren from the Southampton Management School is passionate about innovation in the digital economy. In particular, she is an enthusiast for developing the ideas that bubble up from tech-savvy people in every walk of life.
“Good ideas are no longer merely the province of computer scientists. With the advent of sophisticated technology for all such as smart phones and superfast broadband, anyone with creativity can come up with amazing things.”
Lorraine is urging people who work in the creative industries to seize the opportunities now available to collaborate and achieve their full potential.
She is organising South by South Coast (#SxSC) an all-day informal event on 18 May 2012 at the University of Southampton Students Union building for anyone involved in the region’s creative industries. “Come and meet some great people with interests in the creative industries and digital media. Geek out, talk, hear some inspiring speakers, and enjoy our music and beer, all for free. If the weather is nice you can even sit outside in the patio area,” she says.
South by South Coast is sponsored by: the University of Southampton’s Digital Economy Strategic Research Group and supported by the Centre for Strategic Innovation.
