Hopefully this event marks the beginning of a more consistent and progressive attitude towards digital from our bigger cultural institutions- despite many brilliant and innovative torch-bearers in a number of the smaller institutions. While, frankly, the prospect of this panel was most terrifying it turned out to be all rather good fun and very very interesting.
