Well, blimey, thank you all for your support and ideas on this whole conference thing. The Conway Hall folk now have the cheque in the bank so there's no going back. I've registered interesting2007.com as a placeholder domain for everything conference-related. (At the moment it's just pointing at the relevant posts from here but soon, no doubt, it'll be a cornucopia of delights.)
And though it's just a placeholder I quite like the simplicity of just interesting and the suggestion that there might, maybe, be an interesting2008. (And I like the idea of interestingnorth too.) But huge thanks for the ideas and enthusiasm, I'm mulling everything now and I'll catch up with everyone who's volunteered to speak (or volunteered someone else). And Lloyd, I'd love to talk about something Open Space. I'll get in touch.
And, I have to say thanks to Innocent for coming aboard as first sponsor, earning them official status as Platinum Fruit Refreshment In Bottles Partner.
Thank you everyone. This is exciting. (Anyone know if there's a dead simple, ordering, payment, ticketing, mailing system?)
