I know Joshua Davis since 2001, when I met him the first time at Flash Forward in Amsterdam. I am always happy, when he comes back to my event and gives a talk. In Berlin he was back with some of his latest projects. One of the messages he transports through his talks is something like

Tobi Lessnow, aka Baldower joined the beyond tellerrand family 2013, when he suggest doing Sketchnotes in Music and it has grown into being part of beyond tellerrand at every event.
