So it's time to pack the suitcase and head home - packed with ideas, learnings and inspiration.


I did not get to hear all 770 sessions, demo etc. - but not a problem because most papers are available on


Before I continue with my text - I would recommend that you read Magnus Boye's article "How to hear a Graph" on the Danish website Version2.


Wednesday is the shotest conference day, measured in number of session  - but it actually continues with courses tomorrow. For some last night kick-back party at Hollywood Studios it might be a long day - for others the long travel home, is the tuffest. Today I got to hear keynote speaker and Astronaut Chris Hadfield talk about his life and take calculated risks (among other topics)
