Head of Technology and Distribution
The Jake Berger talks focus on creating a public digital space utilizing the BBC archives. The Head of Technology and Distribution of the BBC's Digital Public Space is managing this project, where they hope to connect people around Britain with the past and with each other. The broadcast media specialist must define the scope and obstacles associated with the overall vision, then solve larger problems with the project in general by breaking them down into smaller issues. This role also entails working closely with other BBC employees as well as external stakeholders. The project must also be in alignment with the BBC's thinking.
The Jake Berger talk makes interesting points around collective memory and how different moments can hold value to different people, while the same moment can be seen differently too.
