Lift your life to the near future

From February 2 till 4 the Lift Conference took place in Geneva. A conference “about current and emerging usage of digital technologies such as online communities, social media and casual games.

My highlights of Lift11

I will do an extensive post later this week with my learnings out of the Lift Conference 2011. I attended this conference last week and had a great time. The level of the talks was very high, far above the average of the usual conference in my opinion.

I collected my tweets on the different session on keepstream. You can watch all video recordings of the talks on the Lift website. My list of top speakers:

  • Kevin Slavin
  • Ben Hammersley
  • Chris Heathcote
  • Yasmine Abbas
  • Marcel Kampman
  • Etienne Mineur
  • Hasan Elahi
