EDITOR'S LETTER

I've got a bit of a love-hate relationship with technology. As

someone who regularly comes back from a quick meeting

to fi nd 20 new messages in my inbox, I can't help but dream

about going back to the days before emails, even if that would

mean cranking up that old friend the fax machine again.

On the other hand, I very much appreciate the internet as a

research tool (Encyclopaedia Britannica doesn't quite cut it

these days, does it?) and I'm thankful for the social networks

that help me stay close to family and friends abroad.

I also fi nd myself marvelling at my iPhone on an almost daily

basis. I mean, come on: if I paid a visit to my 90s self, there's

no way I'd be able to convince the Nokia brick-carrying

grunge girl before me that, in just 20 years' time, the copy of

Superunknown running warm in her Sony Discman will be

one of hundreds of albums saved as data fi les in her phone.

Or that she'll be listening to it on the train home from work,

while also doing the weekly shop (thanks for that, Ocado!),

checking tomorrow's weather forecast and setting the Sky+

box to record that show she's not going to be home in time for.

App technology really has come a long way in a short space

of time but, so far, the events industry has been quite slow to

pick up on its potential. But that's all about to change. As we

discovered when researching this issue, there are too many

great innovations out there to ignore. So here's to another 20

years of progress. I bet my future self won't believe we used to

switch our phones off at a conference.

Enjoy the read,

Editor's letter
