Here’s the video of the talk I just gave at the Beyond Tellerrand conference in Düsseldorf: Resilience.
I can certainly relate to everything Marc describes here. You spend all your time devoted to putting on an event; it’s in the future, coming towards you; you’re excited and nervous …and then the event happens, it’s over before you know it, and the next day there’s nothing—this thing that was dominating your horizon is now behind you. Now what?
I think if you’ve ever put something out there into the world, this is going to resonate with you.
The video of my talk at this year’s Beyond Tellerrand. I was pleased with how this went, except for the bit 16 minutes in when I suddenly lost the ability to speak.
A wonderful, wonderful history of the web from Dave at this year’s Beyond Tellerrand conference. I didn’t get to see this at the time—I was already on the way back home—so I got Dave to give me the gist of it over lunch. He undersold it. This is a fascinating story, wonderfully told.
So gather round the computer, kids, and listen to Uncle Dave tell you about times gone by.
Marc and I have chatted before about the challenges involved in arranging the flow of talks at a conference. It’s great that he’s sharing his thoughts here.
I gave the opening keynote at the Beyond Tellerand conference a few weeks back. I’m talked about the web from my own perspective, so expect excitement and anger in equal measure.
This was a new talk but it went down well, and I’m quite happy with it.
Marc Thiele, the lovely organiser of the Beyond Tellerand conference, needs our help recovering the video footage from this year’s event:
The HDD with all recordings (16 talks, 2 cameras) crashed. After sending the HDD to a recovery center they sent me a quote about 2832 Euro for the recovery job.
That’s about $4000. So far it’s three quarters of the way there already! Let’s see if we can hit that target.
