TV, radio and speaking
I am happy doing:
- conference speaking
- radio, live or recorded (have done quite a few stints now on Radio 4)
- speaking on panels
- recorded TV
Me in recent media bilges:
Brief chat with Evan Davies on Radio 4 Today programme about expectations of openness (data) and reclaiming the word ‘Hack’ 1hr and 19 minutes in…
All about me in The Next Women online magazine
Dubious pleasure of being voted a runner-up most influential voice in tech on Twitter (runner up to Dr Sue Black though is a bit amazing!)
Rory Cellan-Jones of the BBC is lovely about me in his article about computer science
Don’t just scrap ICT
Writing in The Kernel – sudden improvement in prose entirely down to the magical editorial pen of the fabulous Milo Yiannopoulos: A young person’s code
Writing in The Observer about girls and coding
Not a very good time in the life of the organisation, but we survive
Bio for you to copy and paste if I am speaking at your event
Emma is the founder of Rewired State and Young Rewired State: Coding a better country.
Rewired State is the largest independent developer network in the UK with over 1000 software developers and designers, bringing about digital innovation and revolution through rapid prototyping events (hack and modding).
Young Rewired State is its philanthropic arm with the challenge to find and foster every child driven to teach themselves how to code, introduce them to open data – creating a worldwide, independent network of mentored young programmers. Both networks work together to prototype solutions to real world problems.
She has recently been voted onto the Wired 100 list and Tech City 100, writes regularly for the Guardian and The Telegraph in the UK and on her own blog and is best known for her campaign: ‘Year 8 is too Late’ (encouraging girls into technology subjects) and relentlessly pushing the potential of open data.
