Well Interesting South is finally here. A team have put together a conference, not about brands, advertising, blogging or twitter but a wide variety of interesting, unexpected, original things. We’ve found 19 fascinating people and asked them speak for 3 or 10 minutes about something they care about. We want to replicate the experience of clicking from one really good blog to another, ranging across sciences, arts, music, jokes and whatever. The idea is to be informal and fast paced.
I´m in Madrid right now and have had to put together my presentation remotely- a strange scenario of very late nights in a Bangkok hotel, food poisoning, Skype phone calls and the very kind help of my friend Tim.
It´s completely sold out which is great and we´ve also just got an email from the guy who runs TED and they may want to post some of the videos to their site which is pretty cool too.
I won´t be able to be there and see it live, but I will be able to see the night through the eyes of all of my friends, which just might mean that I get a more accurate 360 degree view of proceedings . Running events means that you´re ‘on duty’ all night and that, in combination with having a speaker slot would colour my own perceptions considerably. Now I get to see the night through a friend’s eyes, a colleague’s eyes, a speaker’s eyes, a sponsor’s eyes and through fantastic Emily’s eyes.
We will be giving you all an opportunity to check out the interestingness in the very near future as we´ve arranged a sponsor for hosting. I´ll let you know when it’s live.
