Discussions and Workshops

The agenda for Stream 2016 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

The Customers of 2026 - Come on Down!

The biggest digital-first success stories have in many cases provided mass scale arbitrage, stepping between the end customer and the originating supplier (Google, eBay, Alibaba, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, etc). Direct businesses have just got better at being direct, customers become suppliers, opportunities to exploit the work of others increasingly open up (eg drop shipping). Is this the way it's always going to be? Are the digital customers of tomorrow going to continue to turn to the "middle-people" of the web in such droves? Or will digital (r)evolve again and break the marketplace empires?
