Interestings

Posted on October 1, 2010


Launched, organized and MCed a series of speaking events in Sydney, Portland & the Gorge.

The idea behind Interesting is simple: an evening of 20 different people each talking about something they love/hate/do/did/know/care about/obsess over.

We try to replicate the experience of clicking from one really good blog to another, ranging haphazardly across culture, sciences, arts, crafts, technology, jokes or whatever. The only requirement is that each presentation be 3 minutes long.

Topics have included:

  • How to Pick Out Fruit
  • What is Green – Teaching science to blind kids
  • Confessions of an Omnibologist -An insight into the murky world of bus route design
  • Doughnut Eating Contest by Voodoo Doughnuts
  • The Science of Happiness
  • 1927: The Real Birth of Cool

Interesting operates on a not-for-profit basis, with the community, speakers and organizers pulling it together for the love of ideas.
