The next Liverpol SciBar is entitled Prehistoric Autopsy so head along but make sure you have eaten first.
Following the BBC Two series Prehistoric Autopsy, Dr Isabelle De Groote, gives an insight into three of the most iconic members of our prehistoric family: A Neanderthal, a Homo erectus and an Australopithecus afarensis. The talk will explore what they looked like, how they lived, how they compare with us today and how we ended up being the only human species left.
Interesting video into the use of Mobile Ticketing by the London Symphony Orchestra, who along with Kodime (the digital Agency) and Salford University are testing mobile marketing and ticketing, allowing students to purchase discounted concert tickets through mobile apps. The apps will also use location data to show events nearby and allow students to share comments via social media. This is an Arts Council England funding project.
I can see there being more more use of this kind of individual organisational apps in the future, but the interesting bit is really when they start joining up and cross promoting events using each others apps.
ACME, Liverpool's creative sector developement agency are having 2 events on the 15th November at Leaf Cafe on Bold Street, a Thinking Session and a Social sesssion. We are all more familiar with their Social sessions I beleive, have a couple of free drinks and chat to people that we know. But the Thinking sessions are new from Kin2Kin and are a look at specific insdustry issues in Liverpool. They are there to offer help and advice to those who have been working in the sector some time or just starting out....
