ALASTAIR DANT- Lead interactive technologist from Guardian News & Media (London) - keynote speaker of FIRST MIDDLE EAST NEWS DESIGN CONFERENCE IN BEIRUT- LEBANON

ALASTAIR DANT
 Lead Interactive Technologist - Guardian News & Media

 

Since joining the Guardian, Alastair has played games with the UK budget, created one of Steve Jobs' favorite iPad apps, visualised the Wikileaks war logs and played ball with Twitter. This builds on two decades of tinkering, encompassing early experiments with BASIC, architecting popular children's games and assembling art pieces like the Folk Songs Project.
    Having won a few awards for his work at the Guardian, he has recently been given the chance to build a small team aimed at pushing the boundaries of interactive news development. This has led to a series of talks and workshops in Europe and the US.
