“ Culture Hack Scotland was a great advert for how open innovation can transform access to culture. Blown away by Culture Hack Scotland. Probably the most productive hackday that I’ve ever seen. Well done Scotland. A fantastic opportunity for non-techies to get their head around the possibilities that digital media offers. An educational, informative and fun experience. It really highlighted the advantages and importance of openness and collaboration. No clearer demonstration of how the worlds of digital and the ” arts are the same terra ﬁrma. I want more.
