more fun less talks :slight_smile: we should get to know people more

In Boston I had more fun (knowledge sharing) talking with the people sitting in the grass outside than sitting for long talks about googleX. Barcelona’s highlight were improvised beach party where everybody talked to each others and german went skinny dipping and the police showed up… and what to say about japan’s fabfood sessions… :heart: I can’t sit through another roland dg or shopbot talks, I appreciate their machines but the network buys enough machines from them, we don’t need a boring talk on top of this :kissing_closed_eyes: and to be honest, 15000$ for a boring proprietary cnc is a lot considered u get more shit done, freedom and fun from a 3000$ one…

Unless they give amazing offers to labs… I haven’t heard of any of them here in Canada other than solid works and autodesk, and I think it’s good marketing. I talk about autodesk softwares all the time for 3D scanning with 123d catch or tinkercad for 3D drawings. we give workshop around their machines and softwares… anyway…

Chile should be more focused on people interactions, at least, that’s what stood out of Thomas’ speech in Boston when proposing Santiago del chile… “After the Chicago Boy’s, it’s time to see the Chile boys (and girls)!” Chile’s people won over brazil’s beach party. I think see something there :tada:

more fun, less tak, that’s my only input

Dear Fab Friends,

If I remember correctly, in Shenzhen you described FAB13 as a complex event with pre-conference activities, the conference itself and post conference activities, even in other cities than Santiago alone. Do I remember correctly and, if so, is this still your intention? In that case, could you please repeat what you said in Shenzhen, and which dates and locations are involved? This information helps me make plans and think about possible contributions.

All the best,
Pieter van der Hijden
