First day of QS Europe 2011 in Amsterdam

My first ever day at an unconference and the impressions have been numerous. I love the idea of having the focus of the meeting on the breaks between the presentations, since everybody knows that the really sparking ideas are born over a cup of coffee and some strange looking local speciality (in this case I would call it as the mandarine mousse for the win, or maybe the odd-looking fruit with thorns or spikes…).

Among the ideas/impressions I will take away from today are:

  • The AMAZING workshop on Personal Data Visualization, curated to perfection by the ultimate mix of design, art and data management in the trinity of the hosts.
  • The tweet: @martijnhulst: Nice quote: remember if you’re not paying for the product you are the product. #privacy #qs2011
  • The discussion on how to address data that could be percieved as negative for the person.
  • and of course all the amazing meetings with generous, amazingly passionate and fascinating people!
