I've booked the Conway Hall. Interesting 2011 will be Saturday the 18th of June. But I think this time it'll be a bit different.
Boring, Playful and The Story are all now much better 'people talking about stuff' events than Interesting. Better curation. Better organisation. Better names. And I don't want to organise something similar but not as good.
After cancelling Interesting last year we eventually rushed together a last minute Papercamp. And it was great fun. Less listening to talks, more doing stuff. Less yammering, more hammering. (Though quite a lot of wondering around chatting to people while doing the stuff)
So, this year it's going to be more about activities than talks. And it's going to be divided into sections run by different people.
Leila's going to host an hour or so of 'hacker circus'. I'm hoping this will involve teaching us all how to pick locks.
And Chris is going to be host a molecular gatronomy session where he'll get everyone to spherise food.
And there'll be some music stuff. And I'm hoping Matt will be getting us building towers from tubes and catching eggs dropped from the balcony.
I don't know yet, really. If anyone has any ideas about activities we should do, please let me know.
But probably, because we'll need more room, there'll be fewer tickets on sale. And the tickets might be a little more expensive because we'll be providing you with ingredients or locks or arduinos or something. And we might ask you to bring cooking equipment or ingredients or musical instruments with you.
I'm really selling this aren't I?
Anyway, like I say, that's the rough plan. I will let you know more. Tickets on sale soonish.
There will still be bunting.
