Upon further questioning she stated: According to Mike Taubleb, the chief organiser of the Brooklyn Futurist Meetupthis is the largest regular gathering of self-described futurists in the US, which translated to about 35 visitors on an unusually cold April evening.
What defines a futurist is vague, but by and large these are individuals interested in technology, art, economics and emerging trends. Some had a hippie vibe, others identify as libertarians.
Some were just old-fashioned nerds.
But not just any old episodes: Persistent Peril's creative team came up with the idea of a theatre troupe of animated animal characters, The Beasts of Shakespeare's Globe, who would greet the children and introduce them to Shakespeare and the theatre. The site would have a range of interactive games and tasks grouped within the areas: Globe Playground has quickly become the "stickiest" area of our website, and the experience of working with Persistent Peril has encouraged us to develop more ambitious interactive resources for older age groups.
We don't have in-house programmers but outsourcing means that we can match each small commission with a niche organisation that has the specific expertise. Persistent Peril understood just what was needed, in terms of a child-friendly site, and required little encouragement in taking the lead in developing an identity for the project.

There is and will continue to be an increasing pressure for arts organisations to embrace digital media, in-house and online. Arts organisations are often hotbeds of ideas and content; Tech City companies can translate those ideas into accessible and attractive apps and microsites.
With lower overheads, smaller companies and startups are often more agile and always less expensive than their more established rivals.
This is particularly important for arts organisations that are not able to recoup the outlay by charging for the resources but who have, like the Globe, an educational mission.
While we were developing activities for the Globe Playground, the government announced changes to the primary curriculum. From autumnthe Tudors will no longer be studied at key stage 2. Recently the site published a robust article about the Guardian's technology site and its editor Charles Arthur, entitled " A tragic decline ".
It didn't however fulfil the licence terms for the free picture it used to top the piece, and Arthur whose picture it was suggested the Kernel's offer of payment for the breach be made to a charity of his choice. For reasons not disclosed, the team refused, preferring to pay Arthur instead. As one site commenter noted: Is it perhaps time to stop acting like the drunk in the pub picking fights with everyone around them? But some of the words used to describe him off the record were choice and many were keen to mischievously point to his parting of the ways with the Telegraph in spring after a supplement on startups he oversaw wasn't, in his words, "commercially successful".
The Cambridge-educated journalist, who describes his upbringing as "middle middle-class — horses, two cars and a pool", defends himself: If there is brutality in the Kernel it is always for a good reason.
