The unspoken secret of my attendance at reboot was that, until this morning, I hadn’t looked at the program for the conference. I knew some of the names of the speakers, read somewhere that the conference was, vaguely, about “the future.” But as to the “themes” and “topics,” well, I was too busy figuring out how to get here to pay attention to that sort of thing.
My conference planning, thus, was sort of: conference, Copenhagen, wiki, cool, Air Canada, hotel, register.
As such it came as a pleasant surprise that one of the speakers was organic farmer Thomas Harttung, speaking on The Biological Way Mind the Gap. Thomas is a compelling speaker, a bona fide farmer, and someone who has thought deeply about food, biology, farming and spirituality. The transcript of an earlier talk will give you a taste of his thinking.
His organic farm here in Denmark serves 35,000 clients with organic fruit and vegetables delivered to the door.
And here I thought it was going to be all packets and wikis and gazombozasa.
