I can’t believe someone would ever create a film about what I do. Totally excited, but equally afraid to see how it turns out in the end and what the story line of the documentary is.
How that all started? Well, there are those two guys. Their names are Andreas Brüggemann and Stefan Nitzsche. They both are lovely people. And they decided to make a documentary about what I do – beyond tellerrand. I think that is crazy 😳. But also nice and I am humbled. And excited.
Three weeks before I ran beyond tellerrand in Berlin Léonie wrote me to ask, if I’d be up for co-hosting this years [Inclusive Design 24] online event. Of course I am!
The event takes place on September 22nd and even though it is the 17th birthday of my son at this day, I will find a couple of hours to co-host the show. I am looking forward to a full day of interesting talks from people like John Allsopp, who is speaking about inclusive online events or talks like “Power and Participation in Research” by Catherine Collins. You can find all so far announced presentations in the schedule of #id24. Looks great, doesn’t it?
The whole event is completely free to attend and runs for 24 hours (hence the name). You can also already subscribe to the playlist of the event on YouTube. And if you have a question to any of the presenters, then follow @id24conf on Twitter and ask your questions here.
For beyond tellerrand I often team up with other events and we help to promote each other. The reasons are as easy as follows:
There are a lot of other interesting and good conferences taking place all around the world
Topics are covered that we don’t cover or don’t cover in such detail and depth
Nice people run and attend those events
Attending other events widens your horizon
This time I’d love to introduce you to an event taking place 15 and 16 September 2022. It is called Working Products, exists since 2016 and topics are agile product development, product management and product culture amongst others.
I was planning my first beyond tellerrand event also during this time, which was about to happen in November 2011. Vitaly was planned to be one of the speakers. He came and spoke and we became good friends. During beyond tellerrand in 2011, towards the end of the show, Vitaly took me aside and told me how much he loved the atmosphere and energy and asked if we two should start an event together under the umbrella of Smashing Magazine. And so we did.
