LEGO is full of WIN – my Interesting 2008 talk

Here are the slides and audio for the talk I gave at Interesting 2008 yesterday. 30 slides in 3 minutes.

I’ll post my notes on the day later when my brain recovers a bit more. Rest assured it every bit as interesting as last year. Update: my notes are here.

For now, see my Flickr set, interesting2008 on Flickr and
on Technorati.

Update: the Guardian are hosting a series of videos of the Interesting 2008 talks. Here’s my talk.

  2. Loved your talk too Roo – well, the first 90 secs until I had to go and get ready for mine, so thanks for uploading it so I could enjoy the second half as well.

  4. You’re right – LEGO rules! Thanks for sharing with those of us who couldn’t make it to the in-flesh version of Interesting!

  5. Genius. Just genius. Especially the ‘take a deep breath’ bit.

  7. absofuckinlutely.

    Lego is the reason to breed, Sandy ignores the instructions and just makes stuff. Today it was a totem pole mini fig, with 10 heads on.

  8. We need more minifigs and the like – we’ve only got bricks. We get quite alot of town planning happening in our house.

    I can hear Ebay calling.

    Roo! We missed your talk purely through my insomnia and inability to get up until 7.30. Then I completely failed to see you while we were there. Kin wrangling is… impressively difficult, it has to be said.

  9. This is awesomely interesting. (PUN!) my 5 and 7 year old boys are what we call in the States: lego-manics. I will share this with them!

  10. Um, that should actually read: Lego-maniacs. :-)

  11. You were bloody brilliant! I dragged my poor husband to Interesting and you were the first person one. Thank god! He turned to me, smiled and said “you know this is going to be a good day.” And it was…

  12. Thank you everyone. I had a lot of fun.

  13. I promised I’d make notes about the rest of the day. I did.

    Also, I can’t say how pleased I am to be getting links from MetaFilter and Tom Watson on the same day.

  14. If anyone wants a bumper collection of minifigs to get them going, then Lego sell a Community Worker pack. All with classic Lego smiley faces, too.

  15. Finally managed to watch this – absolutely brilliant. Interesting how quickly people had to stop laughing so you could fit everything in! Real shame I couldn’t make it on the day but I think the people getting married on that day might not have been impressed if I’d traded their wedding for lego. I know which choice you’d have made though Roo ;-)

  16. I guess I’m too late to the party? It has been taken down from the site….

  17. Umm.. nope. I don’t think it has.
