I’d like to thank Peder Burgaard and Christian Schwarz Lausten at Innovation Lab for having invited me to NEXT on November 25th and 26th at the IT University in Copenhagen. This year’s theme is EXIT HABIT – how we work, play, eat, sleep and breathe retooled and reborn by far-out products from a near-on future. Second good news for me Josh Spear has also been invited. Looking forward!
A few days after that, i’ll be speaking at RE/ACT05 in Heidelberg (a German Elvis-loving city apparently!!!) along with Jussi Angesleva (the rfid’d pigeon project he worked on with Marcus Kirsch is to be presented in Rotterdam on Nov. 24), the FUR guys, Hannes Nehls and others (unfortunately Ivan cannot make it)
Then i’ll be in Wales, to be part of a panel organised by BLOC on December 6 and 7. For the Love of Money is a seminar that will explore the issues surrounding creative practitioners who want to develop, as yet, one-offs into more mass produced or mass marketed products/software/services.
And i’ll end the year in Berlin, speaking with Jussi (again!) at the 22nd Chaos Communication Congress, 22C3: Private Investigations, a four-day conference on technology, society and utopia. Berlin, December 27-30 (once again, congrats for the wise choice of dates ;-)
Massimo Banzi asked me to announce Arduino workshops in London on Nov. 25-27 and in Milan on Dec. 2-4. Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language.
