The Rise of Participative Software

Recently I gave a presentation at Ignite Brisbane where I spoke about "The Rise of Participative Software".

You may remember me briefly talking about this topic in an earlier post, as it's something that I'm fairly excited about.  The general idea is that most software just does exactly what the user asks.  You give it some explicit input, it gives you some output.  Participative Software is my name for software that makes suggestions and "participates" without explicit input.

Watch the video for more details.

The five minute time limit meant that I didn't quite get my point across as well as I'd hoped.  I'd like to present the topic over 20 or 30 minutes so I can really drill down on the subject and include a bit more of a call-to-action.

As always, feedback is more than welcome - especially if you'd like to hear a 30min version!
