Snogblog Informal Musings on Formal Things


FFK10 Recap

Two weeks after my rather epic journey home from Germany (thanks Iceland...), and I am finally sitting down and writing my recap. FFK was an exceptionally good event, and I am massively impressed with the FlashForum community in Germany. Cologne (Köln) is a fantastic town, and I recommend it highly. I want to thank Marc Thiele and Sascha Wolter for having me come down for the week. And most importantly, thank you to everyone who came to my session. It's always great to have a full room. :)

My session, titled "Work:Flow" was a variant of the talk I had originally planned on giving. I ended up focusing a bit more on the interpersonal aspects of an organization and how they can aid or inhibit work. To those expecting a more detailed rundown of popular methodologies, I apologize.
