Saturday morning post-lift *blink* *blink* what now?

train
On a train again. To Lausanne with no ticket. Mountains on one side and lake Geneva on the other and in the middle my exploded mind. The fare collector is on her way down the isle, how do I explain to her there was time only to only one of buy a ticket or catch the train. Swiss timing it wouldn’t be late. I caught the train.

Some of you have been following lift on the back channel. It’s hard to explain the feeling right now, now that it’s over. The feeling lke 500 of us, our minds and passions for the world, tech, newmediums, digital-social ecologies and commerce and change hurled around the superconducting track a smashed into a shower of leptons, hadrons

It’s going to take a while to even parse all the data, the inspiration from this conference.

francesca’s early morning feeling:

The ends of these conferences always leave me waffling a little. The convergence of intelligence, passion and curiosity suddenly disappears from your immediate environment, and it is a little like being dropped off on a windblown street corner of a snowy Canada and pondering what next steps to take.

And yes, it turns out you can buy tickets on the train.

And the party seems is not done yet. As Lifters in 1s and 4s and 8s spontaneously descend on Lausanne. [great video hennriette!]

Thank’s Stephanie for your awesome Lausanne hostatiousness! the spirit continues.

but most of all. thank you Laurent for LIFT07.

  • Great post Thomas. It was a fantastic conference, and very inspiring. Laurent created a fabulous environment, with no vendors, and an open agenda. Enjoy Lausanne – its -7 and cold in Toronto.
