So, I have a small announcement that I’ve been very much looking forward to making.
Yesterday, the website for NEXT Berlin, the excellent technology conference [I attended last year](http://www.onemanandhisblog.com/archives/business/next/), relaunched with [a whole new look](http://nextberlin.eu/). Most importantly, it launched with a blog, and I’m the [main contributor to that blog](http://nextberlin.eu/2012/01/welcome-to-the-next-blog/) in the run up to the conference in May.
I’ll be blogging around the concept of Post Digital Culture – and I’ve kicked off by [asking exactly what that might be](http://nextberlin.eu/2012/01/what-is-post-digital/).
I’m really excited to be part of this. Last year’s conference was one of the highlights of my year, and it looked really deeply at the idea of Big Data and the implications that it has for the future of the web *and* our culture. 2012’s topic looks even more stimulating, looking at what happens after the current digital revolution… [Ticket sales kick off tomorrow](http://nextberlin.eu/tickets/), with an early bird rate, and it comes highly recommended from me.
So, while I’m still actively looking for my next full time job (and, indeed, am talking to some people about a couple of great opportunities), this is the first piece of contract work that’s keeping me off the streets in the meantime…
