When everyone sits down to the midnight feast this weekend at FutureBook Hack in the University College London’s Roberts Building, they can toast, among others, one Alice Ryan.
The conference and community manager for The Bookseller is certainly managing some major community now, a collective of more than 100 developers, designers, entrepreneurs, engineers, coders, programmers, marketers, and (my favorite) “people who like to think differently.”
They’re the creative corps registered to spend 36 hours together on Saturday and Sunday, working in teams or individually.
This is what Hack judge and producer Rick Joyce of Perseus Books Group calls “socialising what you’re looking for.”
Once you’ve offered publishing’s needs to a group of hackers who are “fueled by curiosity,” as Ryan puts it, the hope is that you’ll see new thinking, fresh turns on old ideas, imaginative responses to dilemmas.
