Last night saw 120 people cram into Hoxton Hall to see if TV & web could make a baby. OK, so there was no actual baby-making, but there was plenty of ideas and discussion on how we can seize the opportunity this new kind of user behaviour presents.
And our 3 favourite tweets?
"It's interesting back in the day tele was blamed for killing conversation in the household. Now it's instigating debate worldwide."
"Glad someone said it: why should web be second, rather than first screen?"
Good things about #2screen 1. People who knew what they were talking about 2. Nice venue 3. V generous free bar 4. Giant mini quiches
There was more of that on Twitter.
We’d like to thank the people we couldn’t have done 2Screen without:
- Our speakers Adam Gee, Gerred Blyth, Noam Sohachevsky and Tom McDonnell. We thank you for your insights.
- Our host for the evening, the inimitable Cathy Rogers.
- Our much raved about venue, Hoxton Hall and its staff.
- Riz Bell and team at CodexFood, our first-class catering who made sure no-one went hungry or sober.
And our attendees, whom we hope found 2Screen to be an enjoyable and thought-provoking evening.
For those who couldn’t make it, look out for content from 2Screen appearing from next week onwards.
If you need us in the meantime, we’ll be the ones on the sofa, nursing the champagne hangover…
