The first Digital Horizons event (the Future of Retail Online) went live last night, not only IRL (in real life) but also streamed online via Periscope. The Periscope thing was a bit of an afterthought as I really wanted to test it’s effectiveness. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that 559 people viewed the broadcast live. I had been hoping to save the recording but unfortunately I closed the app on my iPhone before I had saved it and so the recording seems to have disappeared. Sorry, I’m learning here. If you watched it at all, it would be great if you could give us some feedback. Indeed, if you attended and you would like to provide some feedback, please do so in the comments below, on Facebook, or drop us an email.
Our keynote speaker, Dr. John Flackett from Koolth was fantastic with some thought provoking commentary about where technology is headed for the online retail space. I was particularly interested in his predictions about retina tracking though I hope things don’t go all “Demolition Man” on us…..
The discussion panel was really informative and and talk was not only about the future of retail as it also took a turn towards security, Google and the effects of mobile tech on websites. Thanks again to Wendy Gomersall, Michael Macolino, Steve Barrett, AJ Jawhari, Deniz Subasi and a late ring in effort by Luis Penascoza.
We put a load of photos onto our Facebook page which you can browse and tag yourself in.
The social media channels were pumping on the night and there were a bunch of tweets and pics flying up online. Browse our twitter to see more than the ones I have embedded below.
