Nokia Open Lab 08 and some great people

Posted by Janne Saarikko on September 18, 2008


So, I did attend Nokia Open Lab event. And it was great! I had great expectations about this event, and the event fullfilled all of those and beyond. Amazing.

The event itself had some 40 participants all around the world, or should I say all around the Internet…Great personalities with strong views about everything and anything. I could have spent a whole full day just talking with every single attendee. Can you imagine how this type of people can contribute and yes, co-create?

One whole day was spent on four workshops:

  • Join the share (by James Whatley)
  • Join the journey (by Glenn Letham)
  • Join the fun (by Anne Toole)
  • Join and collaborate (by CT Moore)

Everyone attended the lively discussions with lot of enthusiasm. The results are available all over the web, good place to start looking is the event homepage. You may also try tag nokiaopenlab08

The second day we had an honor of listening to Adam Greenfield and Udo Szabo. They made some very interesting points. I’m really looking forward to read Adam’s next book, The City is here for you to use.

The best moments of the event were though the discussions, where so many different opinions, ideas, viewpoints and pieces of information were exchanged.

A big hand for Nokia for arranging such a great event. I’m really looking forward to next one, and I hope I will be able to attend.

I will later share some information about the people I met and a bunch of links to some very interesting blogs.

Thanks Nokia and all the attendees! Thanks JP and the team!

And as we say here in Finland “Thank you very many!”😉
