In 2019 I attended the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam with my colleagues and gave a talk along with Matt Brooks about StoryKit, an Object-Based Media Toolkit that we have been developing over the past few years to allow content creators to make interactive audience experiences. At the time of writing our most successful pilots were Click1000, Instagramification and HDMAdventure. Reception to the talk was good and there were lots of interesting questions afterwards. It was certainly nice to be talking in front of large conference audiences again after a bit of a hiatus from conferences.
