Audio Interviews in Brussels this week in connection with the Skunkworks workshop?

Hi all,

Since so many of us are in town for the skunkworks session this week I thought we could take the opportunitiy to do audio interviews.

This would be for our upcoming series of articles introducing people and conversations happening on planet edgeryders.

The purpose: make more visible who is interested in what in order to enable others with overlapping or complimentary work to connect with them - and give a sense of what this “Edgeryders” space is like.

How it will work:
We record a conversation with the participant about

  • brief introduction - name, based in, role in any “home” organisation (e.g current title)
  • what they do/are currently exploring and how
  • a personal (or professional) experience that was especially formative/important to them on their path to where they find themselves
  • deeper reflections about one or two topics that especially matter to them right now.
  • End with a chat about how they find themselves at the skunkworks and some reflections about the work and conversations they are exploring in edgeryders.

We will need:

  • 30 minutes of each participants’ time for an interview conducted by me.
  • Audio recording set up in the venue where the skunkworks is happening.
  • Written Consent
  • from @alberto an interview before the actual event to give us a bit of background information about the event and the activities it is a part of.

Can you aim for 10 minutes instead? Otherwise you will need to pull people off sessions for extended periods of time.

@nadia Yes, of course. In 1-3 hours I will send an outline of my introductory remarks. I am re-contextualizing several things, by sketching a “global” frame for our work. Will love to talk about it.

Ok. Not sure we will go deep enough then @alberto - would like to produce AEON type articles out of this. So those who are up for it are very welcome to do so. Perhaps some people are arriving earlier/staying than others and could do it before/after the actual workshop?

Another alternative could be short audio interviews and photo on location, followed by a remote interview done over voice chat after the event?

You can catch @melancon, @amelia and @hugi Monday late afternoon. And the Brussels crowd of course you can get any time-ish.

Nadia, happy to do the interview … your software eludes me.

I am arriving late on Monday (tomorrow). I am there only for our event, so please schedule me the way that best fits the program and your schedule. Flying back to Warsaw on Wednesday at 21:15 pm or so. Where should I send my notes? Here?

How about Wednesday at 8h40?
