Thomas and I spent a pleasant couple of hours this morning showing our conference‘s first guest of honour around Bergen. Much more fun than sitting in the office doing last minute organisation, and it was really interesting getting to know Howard Rheingold (of Smart Mobs and other fame) a little. Luckily it didn’t rain much, and the mist didn’t stop us enjoying some view from Fløyen, though we didn’t feel like staying up there for very long.

Hopefully streaming will happen too in which case I’ll announce it here.
