The IBC conference and exhibition, once again in Amsterdam, is broadcast techie heaven.

BBC Chief Technology Officer Matthew Postgate is a keynote speaker, but the BBC has so many in the full list of those taking the stage this September, that perhaps it should stage a conference of its own. They include (and I note a general lack of Postgate's preferred divisional title 'Engineering' in their job descriptions)...

Mike Armstrong, Senior R&D Engineer, BBC R&D
Andy Bocking, Head of Technology, BBC News
Tim Borer, Lead Technologist, BBC R&D
Andrew Cotton, Principal Technologist, BBC R&D
Lesley Johnson, Operations Director, BBC Worldwide
Muki Kulhan, Executive Digital Producer, The Voice
Andrew Murphy, Lead Research Engineer, BBC R&D
Nick North, Director of Audiences
Will Saunders, Creative Director of Digital, BBC
James Sandford, Research Technologist, BBC R&D
Professor Graham Thomas, Principal Technologist, BBC R&D
Philip Tudor, Principal Technologist, BBC R&D
Fran Unsworth, Director, BBC World Service
Mark Waddell, Lead Technologist, BBC R&D

Even newly-wed Andrew Neil is going, to chair a session. But then, he's a freelance.
