RELEVANS conference at Geilo
I’m at Grafill’s Edit 8.0 conference, RELEVANS, which is being held at the lovely Dr. Holms hotel at Geilo this year. Geilo is halfway between Bergen and Oslo, high in the mountains, and the train trip here set the atmosphere with its ice-laced scenary.
RELEVANS is a graphic designers’ conference, but Tom Hals¯r asked me if I’d like to come and speak about my blog – because they wanted something from outside of the design world. They were interested in branding, self-portrayal, blogging, the web.
Next conference I organise I want to hire an improv actor as the announcer (konferansier) – BÂrd BrÊnde has been doing the honours here, and is doing a fabulous job. He insisted that the audience should think of my presentation as a blog itself, and should send in comments by SMS to his mobile phone – what a brilliant idea!
Here are the slides for my talk.
