Conference of interestingness

An interesting idea for a conference:

[…] The plan is to have all sorts of speakers speak about all sorts of stuff. Not brands, advertising, blogging and twitter but interesting, unexpected, original things. I’m hoping to find fascinating people and to just ask them to speak about something they care about. I want to replicate the experience of clicking from one really good blog to another, ranging across sciences, arts, musics, jokes and whatever. There will be 20 minute slots and 3 minute slots. Some people will play music or sing. And some people who can’t be there will be asked to send three minute videos. Perhaps. I reckon we can squeeze a lot of interestingness into a day. And then have a party afterwards.

London, June 16.

Yes, interesting.

    The man at the centre of this, Russell Davies, is a big name in the UK comms. planning community and needless to say he and many of those who are enthusiastic about this initiative are diehard fans of the TED conferences and wondered when we’d get something similar in London!
