Rageboy Reboots

I’ve just checked out the program for Reboot and I’m excited to see that Chris Locke aka Rageboy is going to talk. Here’s his synopsis:

“We die.”

With that opening salvo, I kicked off chapter one of The Cluetrain Manifesto. While death is no joke, it does put certain aspects of our common humanity into perspective. Grandiose pretensions become laughable. Self-righteous posturing becomes transparently hilarious. Fear unpacked morphs into vulnerable compassion. People of Earth: we could be heroes.

That should be fun. There’s loads of other pretty darn smart talks there, and then one by me. I’ve foolishly agreed to do a talk about Contact, subtitled “fuck off, come closer”. I’m slightly dreading it to be honest but then I probably need to re-read Chris’ perspective!

    “fuck off, come closer”? Are you sure you haven’t got Borderline Personality Disorder? If you have don’t talk to Chris Locke about it.

    Dude – sounds like it’ll be a great event.

    I really look forward to your talk! I enjoyed the workshops last year really much – and I like that you promised not to do a slow powerpoint death 🙂
