I’m off today for Sweden to speak at this event, and I have to say I’m astonished that basically nobody’s registered for it on Facebook. I shall choose to interpret this as an indication that you-all Malmönoids aren’t heavy Facebook users, rather than concluding that I’ll be giving a talk to an audience of, well, Mark. : . )
Seriously, if you’re in the area, come on down tomorrow. I promise it’ll be worth the train trip from Copenhagen or Lund: the event is free, and the organizers have arranged a generous few hours to stretch out in, relax, do the full talk and have a real conversation. (With most of my Q&A’s over the past year pared down to the absolute minimum, this last in particular feels like a genuine luxury.) I look forward to seeing you there.
UPDATE a few days later: So we overflowed the room. So much for trying to estimate crowd size from who signs up on Facebook, I guess. : . )
Thanks to Bob Jacobson, to Pelle, Bo, Maria and Kathrine, and to everyone who came out on a drizzly night to hear me spiel, ‘specially those of you who crossed the Øresund to do so. It was a pleasure, and I’m sure I’ll find myself back in Skåne before all is said and done.
