The My Destination annual conference

This time round the ‘family meet-up’ in a swanky hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. It was an increadibly intense week of presentations, workshops, discussions, and some socialising.

I just wanted to share 2 photos.

1. The most opulent room I have ever run a workshop in – just shows the scale of the Mandarin Oriental hotel or how important I am?!

TED Video: We are all cyborgs now

I watched this video while waiting for the motorcycle breakdown recovery people with <1% battery on my phone and watching people stream out of the train station with phones glued to their ears, mobile in the 'compass' position and people still watching videos on their tablets. Everyone walking, in order, heads down. And then watching this video it struck a nerve. Look around on your commute in tomorrow and you will see this new anthropological view on the world.

I love infographics and love then even more when they come from my own team. Here is the latest in the series talking about how it is better to plan ahead and get the true experience. That’s where people like My Destination come into their own with locally written, sourced and curated real-time content. I like it here – it really is the future.
