Who's on the bill this year?

Is it?

We're hugely honoured to announce our first 21 speakers for TDC 2014 including science performer Steve Mould who we last saw on stage at the Edinburgh Fringe, provocative innovation economist Mariana Mazzucato, former Forbes & Newsweek tech editor Dan Lyons and designer Aral Balkan who returns in 2014 to talk about his bold new Indiephone project.

Thinking Digital is for you if you are curious about how technology is shaping our future, and want to hear stories from those already making an impact, like Sugata Mitra is doing in the field of education.

*BHAG = "Big Hairy Audacious Goal" - an ambitious long-term strategic business statement; term made famous by James Collins and Jerry Porras in the bestselling Built to Last.

It's for you if you want to be inspired and inspire others like Maggie Philbin from Tomorrow's World is doing with TeenTech.

It's for you if you want to connect with a community of innovators, inventors, leaders, makers and creators of our future. If you 'work hard' and believe in the power of 'playing hard' too, you'll fit right in.

It's for you if you want to gain new ideas from other disciplines that may be advantageous in your own field, and question the way you see the world. After Aral Balkan's talk, everybody questioned the ticket machine.
