“I’m not hungry when I listen to techno”
– Flash on the Beach 2007

I love flash conferences, the ones I’ve been to have always had such an excellent selection of speakers and the general atmosphere is so lively and friendly (ok, so maybe not so lively first thing after a disco-styley party, but still).

The speakers I had the pleasure of seeing were:
Erik Natzke
Joshua Davis
Robert Hodgin
Brendan Dawes
Craig Swann
Carlos Ulloa
Hoss Gifford
Aral Balkan
Branden Hall
Grant Skinner
Keith Peters
Jared Tarbell
Ted Patrick
André Michelle

…and a little bit of Mario Klingemann at the 20 minute / 3 speaker session that they arranged last minute.

If you want to see what each speaker had to say, visit Dan’s blog cause I just snuck a peek over his shoulder to see him writing nice little details about each session we saw, so I’ll won’t go much into that and actually get some sleep while he does all the extra bits! Woohoo!!

But from creating insanely beautiful globes of light moving to audio created straight from numbers and code you couldn’t have been disappointed or uninspired.

My favourite quote from all of the FOTB’s sessions would have to be André’s answer to overrunning into lunch time and when being asked to wrap it up replied with “I’m not hungy when I listen to techno”. Queue well deserved applause. 😀

Already looking forward to the next flash conference, and hopefully inbetween now and then I’ve actually sat myself down and put some of what I’ve learned into practice.
