… That’s a wrap!
heading_triangle
It feels really nice to say “that’s a wrap!” There is completion in it. That yes, we’ve done it! It’s happened! We’ve survived, and we are here to tell the tale.

It’s been a big few months at The Edge, and while there is a tonne of new stuff (and might I say, quite awesome stuff!!) coming up, we’ve also accomplished a lot to-date. One of the biggies was the Brisbane Powerhouse IRL Digital Festival. If you didn’t catch the exhibition, I’m sorry to say, you missed out big time!
 
In this that's a wrap issue, we’ve got a round up from Daniel Flood with the IRL Digital Festival; Andrei Maberley reflects on his regional travels with Creative Community Computing; and Talia Yat talks inspiration and amazing moments from our time at the Analogue Digital conference.
 
But that’s not it – this issue is packed! If you’re looking to do something over the coming weeks, we’ve got you covered with workshops and guest events. The Auxiliary Design crew have just wrapped up (see there it is again) their fourteen week programme and now it’s your chance to check out some of their work at the Design Exhibition. Plus, BrisScience is bringing the goods again, with their next event: From Test Tube to YouTube.
