TEDxCardiff - Paul Clarke - Harmony and Ideas; Why Perfection Is Your Enemy

Paul Clarke has a 15-year background in public service information, having worked in most of the large government departments and across local authorities on technology and business change programmes. This included two years as Head of Strategic Proposition for Directgov. He has specialised in recent years in digital strategy, and how technologies such as social media can support engagement between citizens and government. In the social media world he is known for the Tweetbike a mash-up between Twitter and a motorbike, to rescue stranded commuters during Tube strikes and for creating a data standard that allowed users reports of snow conditions (#uksnow) to be made into a useful, real-time map. Paul is passionate about photography, and the ways in which image can enhance other forms of communication. He has documented much of the social media and technology scene in London and across the UK, and is working on a project that links together his interest in citizen/government engagement with his love of striking images. His other great interests are music (particularly the science of harmony), psychotherapy, and the challenges faced by men in a world of changed expectations and equalities. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
