Digital Sector News and Events

Liverpool's Digital sector news

For awhile there we were the only ones publishing Digital sector news and we saw it as our duty to help the sector to develop, so it sat quite nicely beside our other activities such as How Why DIY, Social Media Cafe and Ignite Liverpool. Each in the own way helping the digital sector  or digital community to come together, meet, mix and lead to some useful collaborations. 

 If you have any relevant sector news then let us know and we can publish it for you - it automatically gets inculded in our newsletter.

Defcon presents......

defcon-consciousness-final

 

Satirical magazine Defcon is looking to launch itself into the internet age and is seeking local writers to get involved. 

After a long, long hiatus Defcon magazine is planning an online magazine and a fanzine. The original magazine's focus on what could be described as something between satire and therapy will still be in there, but it will also have a broader cultural focus. It will be North-West centric but highly international. If you imagine that it is as focussed on the North West as a gritty ITV detective series might be, but understands that there are policemen everywhere, then you will be close enough to the truth. The North West focus will predominately be within features, previews and interviews. Other sections will be a free for all.

eHealth opportunities newsletter - February

Occassionally relevant news for the Liverpool digital sector is hard to come by and at other times it's published in a friendly newsletter, when this happens I like to republish it in some open source kind of way. Information is power - according to Gordon Gecko so here is some power.
