The idea, as a speaker, is to provide 'perspective and provocation. I can do that.
However, I'm canvassing opinion and input on the issues which YOU guys think are important and what you think the role of CS should be within the increasingly converged creative industries here in Scotland…Continue

works. For him, the city is the ultimate creation of human ingeneuity. The
