Hey! Welcome back from summer vacation! We start the new season with an experiment. In this episode, we review three talks that were given at the Information Plus Conference. The Conference took place from June 16 -18 in Vancouver, Canada, and featured a whole array of amazing speakers.
Listen here for selections from each presentation, plus our comments and reflections on each talk.
And let us know how you like this new format! We may be able to repeat it again in the future.
Special thanks to our amazing producer Destry Sibley, who curated the selection of talks and created the snippets for this episode. And many thanks to Isabel Meirelles and the Information Plus team for making the material available to us.
Enjoy the show!
