Next Thursday, May 14th, 2009 a new series of lectures on the topic of Visual Thinking will be starting at the University of Toronto. It looks like a great lineup of speakers, bookended by two past VizThink
conference facilitators, Neil Cohn
& Colin Ware
. At this point I’m planning to be at all of the lectures (and will be declaring them unofficial VizThink Toronto meetups at the same time ;) ). It looks like it should be a really interesting format – the talks start at 5:15 and go until 6:45pm but each talk will also be followed by a public “brainstorming session” that runs until 8:00pm – I have no idea what that entails but it sounds like fun.
If you’re planning to attend any of them drop me an email (ryan@ this domain) or ping me on twitter @ryancoleman & we can all plan to go for a drink after to continue the conversation (and see if we can’t convince the speakers I know to join us ;) ). I’ve also created the event at the vizthink site so RSVP if you’re coming.
What: KDMI Visual Thinking Lecture Series
When: Every Thursday from May 14 until June 18th @ 5:15pm
