I’ve just return from the Lift 09 conference in Geneva, the tag line for this years conference was “where did the future go”. There where many great talks, too many to mention but a lot of which you can see here: http://www.nouvo.ch/liftvideo
Lift is know for being generally ‘web centric’ but the one talk that really got me, perhaps because it was kind of off topic or perhaps because it is just an amazing tale beautifully told. Was Sarah Marquis talk, about giving up the comforts of a technologically rich western lifestyle and walking for 18 months through the Australian outback.
I’ve embed the video below, it starts in French but once she speaks it is then translated into English.
I can’t recommend watching it highly enough, enjoy.
