      • Bill Thompson on "The Two Cultures Problem": OpenTech 2009


        from Richard Elen Added 575 6 1

        One of the high points of my attendance at OpenTech 2009 on Saturday 4 July was the after-lunch talk by Bill Thompson, whom I would rate as one of the UK’s leading technology commentators. He writes and broadcasts frequently (such as on BBC World Service’s weekly technology show Digital Planet, which I also recommend highly), and is well worth following. He took as his theme an updated take on the “Two Cultures Problem”, after CP Snow’s famous lecture of 50 years ago. From the notes for OpenTech: “It’s fifty years since CP Snow’s famous lecture on the Two Cultures – science and literature. We seem to have a different divide these days, between ‘people like us’ and the rest. What might be done about this?” Here’s the video I took of Bill’s talk – which is the short version of one he gave last month in Cambridge, for which a recording is currently unavailable – uploaded with Bill's permission.

                Last week, no surprise, Michael Bloomberg was reelected Mayor of New York. The surprise the narrow the gap between him and opponent Bill Thompson, which some have attributed to support from Hispanic newspaper El Diario. Yasmine Guerda reports on whether the paper’s endorsement of Bill Thompson gave Mayor Bloomberg a black eye. Produced by Yepoka Yeebo
