Next week I’ll be chairing the NextGenTV conference in London. There’ll be a top line-up of speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities of next-generation television services. Meanwhile, our colleagues at X|Media|Lab will be holding their first European event to coincide with the Virtual Worlds Forum in London. They will be offering the chance to workshop a project with a team of expert mentors. If you’re involved in a virtual world initiative, or simply want to find out more, contact X|Media|Lab for further information. Details of these and other events can be found in our conference call listings or in the events diary on
