I've just spent two great days at the conference (#theconf on twitter) listening to some amazing talks on digital media and the future. If you weren't there you should check out some of the talks that are available online.
I strongly recommend the keynote talks by Riyaad Minty who works with social media at Al Jazeera and the talk on Man & Machine by cyborg anthropologist Amber Case.
I also attended talks on disruptive thinking, crowdfunding and hacking your own body. My head is spinning after two really intense days with lots of new ideas and impressions.
And I became my own souvenir. I got scanned, digitalized and a mini-me printed on a 3D-printer. The technology is still a little primitive but imagine what they are gonna do with 3D-printers in a few years...

I talked to a lot of interesting people during these two days, but the words that stuck the most come from Bill Drummonds keynote talk this morning.
"You can stand on the outside looking in or you can stand on the outside looking further out. I prefer looking further out."
