Who's coming to TYPO Berlin 2009?
0

So, who's coming to TYPO Berlin (May 21–23)? I saw Nick Shinn will be speaking. Any other Typophiles attending? (If you register TODAY you will probably still get the early booking rate. Yes, I know, it's kind of late to state this now.)

I registered a few days ago, after realizing I can get the student rate :-). I've been there twice before (2004, 2006) and it was always great input. Would be wicked to meet some Typophiles there!

I’m just hoping that I can find a job and pay my student loans in 2009. I’m pretty sure conferences are out for me next year.

I'd love too if my job allows for it.

I want to go, but not decided yet.

Yeah, it's probably kind of early to ask :). It just struck me today that the early booking is closing. Well the "very early booking" is; they also have somewhat discounted rates through the end of February.

I've been lucky enough to attend each year for the last five years. No that I live in town half of the time, I am sure that I'll be there again, one way or another. I highly recommend the conference.

Yes, I'm really excited to be speaking at such a big conference, and in Berlin, which I've never visited.
I originally intended to speak about space in a two-dimensional typographic sense, but then discovered the conference is about the third dimension.
I suppose I could address the topic of 3D type, but have decided to tackle something not related to type at all.
TBA.

Congrats, Nick! Wish I could afford the trip to see you and all the rest :-(

That sounds exciting, Nick! Looking forward.
I was kind of confused too that they appear to understand 'space' in a three-dimensional way. I'm curious to see what everyone will be speaking about.

BTW, about their web site: What in the world is a 'faciliator'? Is that even a word?

I'll be there too. And I'm looking forward to the "creative" interpretations of the theme. Sometimes it's great fun and pretty absurd ;-)

I have to admit that I never pay much attention to the conference's theme. I know that the organizers try to really tie the theme into each conference, and they do a great job with every aspect of the organization. But for me, the conference is about the people. I can't remember the themes off the top of my head of the TYPO conferences that I've been to.

Second (consecutive) TypoBerlin for me this year. Enjoyed the first one enormously.

Agree with your analysis of conference themes, Dan. Though "Music" definitely had some meaning 2 years ago with a lot of interesting connections between design and music.

True that. I did enjoy the music, especially the Wolfraam performance. But the House Industries set was not so different from their 2004 TYPO appearance. I would have been disappointed, but I wasn't because I think that "Suburban Curse" is one of the best songs ever.

Aside from the TYPO Music night, most of my favorite talks had nothing to do with music. But I am a type designer nerd, and I guess I am in the minority of attendees to a more general-themed graphic design conference. Although, I did enjoy the music angle that you and Yves brought into your presentation.
