Mark Wubben’s Flickr photostream has a shot of his iCal with Reboot 8 in it. Last year’s Reboot 7 was a blast – excellent speakers, low entry fee, nice location and above all a very relaxed atmosphere. Jesse James Garrett and Bruce Sterling are confirmed speakers, worth the admission alone methinks. I’m already looking forward to attending this year’s “Roskilde of the internet” will you join me?
- More play (see Flickr.com)
- Make your software social (how?)
- Keep things open (no gatekeepers)
- Get blogging to work for you
- Contribute to a new online etiquette
- Get real
- Take the natural reactions of the human brain into account when creating interfaces
- Beauty isn’t just on the outside, but also on the inside
So, Reboot 7.0 has come and gone. I’m sitting here, just got back to my hotel from the afterparty at Vega. Supposedly the hottest club in Copenhagen. Lonely Planet was right about the amount of obscenely good looking and well dressed people present. Good times.
Before I go to sleep just a thought about how to incorporate at least parts of what I’ve seen and heard these two days into my daily practice as a designer. People like Jason Fried and Matt Webb really push me to become a better professional. We’ll see where it’ll go.
Looking forward to seeing you again, Netherlands…
Great moment at Reboot: Christian Lindholm of Nokia asks everyone who owns an iPod to stand up. More than half of the audience rise. Then he asks everyone to take the iPod out of their pocket. Two people do.
“If you’re not in the pocket, you’re not mobile.”
“If it’s not in the pocket, it’s not mobile.”Technorati: reboot7, reboot, nokia, mobile
Right. So, the first half day of Reboot has passed. Some first impressions:
- The venue is pretty cool. It’s an old glass factory on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Refitted as a sports facility.
- Excellent sandwiches for lunch (and excellent serving)
- Blog, blog, blogblogblog; Reboot is pretty heavy on the blogging scene
- Did we mention blogging? ;-)
- The hotel room reminds us of either a former Russian submarine, or a cabin at the Starship Enterprise
- Two kinds of people at this conference: those with and those without a laptop (or blog)
