After the success that was Fronteers 2008, Fronteers lost no time in starting up preparations for the next edition of our conference.
Fronteers 2009 will be held on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th of November in Felix Meritis, Amsterdam. Just like last year, it will have a stellar line-up of Dutch and foreign speakers. Please jot down these dates in your agenda; you wouldn’t want to miss this one.
Ticket sale will start in May, and Fronteers members will get a hefty discount.
Last year I did about 75% of the organisational work myself. It was a heady experience, especially because I could congratulate myself on a very smooth-running conference, but still the sheer amount of work I did was partly to blame for my total crash at the end of October.
Therefore I’m very glad that four other Fronteers members have joined me in the organisation. I hope to organise only 30 or 40% of the conference this year and leave the rest to other people. Now that would be a luxury.
This is as good a time as any to inform you of my other conference plans.
Unfortunately I will not be going to SxSW this year; I don’t have the money. Besides, I’d like to continue my period of calm for an extra month. I will have a difficult moment when the happy tweets of SxSW goers start showing up in droves, but all in all I think this is the best decision for myself.
Otherwise there’s not much on my schedule right now. I hope I’ll be able to visit @media 2009, but that depends on my finances.
