⇾ Data Stories with Brendan Dawes

| | permalink

They seem to have recorded 90 episodes already, but somehow I managed to miss this podcast. Just because Brendan Dawes was their guest in issue 90 and tweeted about it, I know about this podcast. A lovely episode and nice to listen to. I mean … come one … it is Brendan. People must think we have a love affair anyways as much as I tell people about him …

⇾ TWUMBLE – Episode 9 with Joschi Kuphal

I took an unwanted pause after episode 8 of my little podcast called TWUMBLE. This was not planned and just happened as I had too much work with my last beyond tellerrand event and some family reasons needed attention. But now I am starting over again and am happy to finally managed to get Joschi Kuphal on the show, which we planned for quite a while.

Check episode number 9 of my German show called TWUMBLE.

⇾ The Experience Running An Event Twice

ffconf is a one-day event with a great vibe, lovely atmosphere and a well curated line-up each and every year. This year Julie and Remy Sharp ran ffconf twice. That means they ran the event on Thursday and on Friday again, which was not meant to be a two-day event, but a two times one-day event. My try to explain this on its own maybe already shows one of the issues they had to deal with, but I think many of the things Remy writes in his blog post, are a great learn for everybody running events. Thanks Remy for writing this. And one day, I manage to attend again!

We know pins won’t save the world, but wearing them might make us feel better. And convincing our likeminded liberal friends to vote for Hillary can go a long way, especially in a swing state.
