(Near-) live blogging at Ogilvy Verge

I did a spot of liveblogging at Ogilvy's Verge event at the British Library yesterday.

Well, it wasn't quite live. I watched the presenters present, then wrote my posts in the lunch and tea breaks. (I know us Diginative are famed for our multi-tasking, but trying to simultaneously absorb, evaluate and respond to someone else's nervous mumblings really isn't much fun, and tends to result in sloppy "X said Y" reporting, as opposed to the cunning commentary I obviously aspire to.)

You can read my quasi-spontaneous reactions to Rory Sutherland's excellent keynote (here) and a throwaway comment from the BBC woman (here) if you've got nothing better to do on a sunny Friday afternoon.
