I talked about how – when I was running the intranet at the BBC back in 2005 – I was inspired by the transformation programme at London’s South Bank Centre. I found it a useful analogy for the work we were doing to transform our digital workspace.
Useful to a point, I find analogies can become most interesting at the points where they break.
This is a short version of the longer talk I gave at London IA back in November 2010, which Martin Belam blogged about. See also Matthew Solle’s post Conversations Over Coffee for some more background and a little bit of ranting.
