I just noticed that I forgot to announce to the world that I will be at SocialConnections 9 in Stuttgart next. The dates to save are November 5 – 6 and the location for the Shindig is STUTTGART in good old Germany.
The agenda is already finalized , take a look right here: http://socialconnections.info/agenda/
You will actually find me in there twice because this time I am not just presenting my own, riveting content but also co-presenting with a good friend of mine, Christoph Stoettner. Him being Bavarian and I being half Austrian we are able to totally confuse the crowd with insider talk and strange dialects that most Germans north of the Weißwürschtl Grenze (see below) have allot of trouble understanding – but don’t worry, the actual presentation will be in English.
For all of those among you who want to know more about the everlasting love-hate-indifference relationship between the north and south of German speaking people, look this up: Weißwurstäquator. And additionally, just for the insiders – we count our Swiss friends and brethren as human and normal, even though nobody else really understands Schwyzerdütsch. But the Swiss are just cool and know it, so we accept them as is.
As you can see, next to the unbelievably captivating content and massive amount of slides that Christoph and I will be presenting, we are fully prepared for any linguistic duel that might be waiting.
I do hope to see allot of you at the conference, judging fro the agenda it promises to be quite the exciting – sign up and let me know if you are planning to come!
