Creative technologists join the Lighthouse team

19 April 2012

Our Happenstance creative technologists have arrived and already feel part of our team. By Ikechukwu Onodugo

On 16 April, we welcomed the new Happenstance residents, James Bridle and Natalia Buckley to Lighthouse. Over the next three months, they will both be in deep immersion within our organisation thinking up brilliant yet unusual ways to help us navigate our increasingly digital world.

Natalia Buckley is a skilled web developer and interactive designer who is passionate about exploring the way we as individuals interact with the technology around us. James Bridle, who will be giving our monthly talk for May, is a writer, publisher, technologist and maker of The New Aesthetic tumblr currently making waves in the digital stratosphere.

Needless to say we’re extremely pleased to welcome two such outstanding technologists into the fold and we’re excited to see what they come up with. I for one am hoping for a en ET style robot named ‘ED’, no pressure….

Natalia describes the anticipation best in her blog where she says “Any impact that this project will have on the way Lighthouse operates will be felt by many more organisations, so this is a brilliant opportunity to do something great… no pressure then!".
