reboot 7 redux

I’ve been feeling nostalgic for the reboot7 conference back in 2005, rereading the posts I wrote back then. It was such an awakening, on so many levels.

In late February I’m heading back to Berlin for a week, in part to attend Cognitive Cities, a conference organized in part by reboot alumnus Igor Schwarzmann.

To be honest, I’ve no idea what Cognitive Cities is about – smart transportation? municipal politics? the coming of our robot overlords? – and I’m attending entirely on the strength of the Cognitive Cities blog (every post of which I find interesting), and because Igor’s an interesting guy, and I figure he wouldn’t be part of something uninteresting.

And, besides, the conference is turning into a sort of reboot7 reunion: Ton is speaking (met at reboot7, facilitated by Plazes) and Elmine is attending. Pedro will be there too (met at reboot). And Morgan. And Luisa. (Did I mention that some of the aforementioned and I own shares in a boat together?)

I’m also hoping revisit some of the letterpress shops that got me reinvigorated about printing this spring and to hook up with members of the old Plazes crew for a reunion of sorts.

Looking forward to seeing you in Berlin.

Am also unsure what exactly the conference will be about, but it’ll be interesting!

Was not at Reboot7 though, and ms. Weber is in the 2nd. degree of my network … although so many of our friends overlap these days, that we might as well have gone to kindergarten together :P

Didn’t we go to kindergarten together?

It almost feels like it
