In lieu of actually attending the conference (due to Pat's PhD fieldwork) - Patrick and Chris recorded this discussion about some of the key ideas in the paper, such as a bit about Appropedia's history, the experience of using it for a transport informatics project, and next steps for the project.
We're keen for feedback and new potential users of Appropedia - the general webpage is at appropedia.org/ - see appropedia.org/Appropedia:Contact_us for getting in touch.
