Weeknotes 169; meta deep dive

Hi all. Welcome to this week’s update. This is a short one and a bit delayed; I have had some ‘extra’ meetings on Monday and no time to reschedule the writing… Next week I promise to do a complete edition again!

Organizing a conference is always a lot of work. ThingsCon 2021 is a smaller edition than usual in time, and fully online, but it does not make it less work. Especially as we have a great program of course. And the student competition is just like other years; 20 projects entered from different places and countries. And we have chosen to use a new tool that possibly will deliver a different type of online event: SpatialChat. Setting this up including a student exhibition is nice to explore. Feel warmly invited to register to join! The exhibition opens at 14:00 CET, the speaker’s program start 17:30. Thanks to CLICKNL participation is free.

So I leave the look back, for now, will cover it next week. But I did save some interesting articles from last week for myself to read, so let me share these with you too! See you next week!
