I was at the interesting conference today and it certainly lived up to it’s name.

From Russell Davies’ Blog

The plan is to have all sorts of speakers speak about all sorts of stuff. Not brands, advertising, blogging and twitter but interesting, unexpected, original things. I’m hoping to find fascinating people and to just ask them to speak about something they care about. I want to replicate the experience of clicking from one really good blog to another, ranging across sciences, arts, musics, jokes and whatever. There will be 20 minute slots and 3 minute slots. Some people will play music or sing. And some people who can’t be there will be asked to send three minute videos. Perhaps. I reckon we can squeeze a lot of interestingness into a day. And then have a party afterwards.

This year’s event included people talking about

  • Lego
  • Geography
  • Insomnia
  • Booze
  • Toilets
  • Vacuum Cleaners
  • Animation
  • Churchill
  • Developmental Neurology
  • Guitars and Graphics
  • World War II Information Design
  • Acoustic Cosmology
  • Naming Things
  • Doodles
  • …And Lots More


Look out for the videos as they come online.


You can find videos of talks from Interesting 2007 on his site too.

My question of the day: If you had to give an interesting talk. What would it be on?
