Our keynote speaker will be the world famous bestselling author Federico Pistono:

    Hugh Loebner would be an ideal speaker for the conference if the To Be Determined location is in the Red Light District: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Loebner

      he is a great guy, I know him personally, but he is not an expert in the latest technologies...

      One of the theaters in De Nes could be a great location. De Waag might be a bit small. Sint Olofskapel is nice too

      June 12, 2013

  • Harry I.

    For our own pride ;-) it would be good to include "What's new from The Netherlands"?

    Is it possible to eat at the venue? I know there are some nice restaurants close by but with the schedule it won't be easy to go there before 8pm. Just checking so I can prepare myself.

    June 9, 2013

    • Michiel S.

      Hi Floris, unfortunately that's not possible. We would advice to eat something beforehand so you won't feel hungry until after the drinks ;)

    One day a salesman came along to the railroad camp. He had a steam-powered drill and claimed it could out-drill any man. Well, they set up a contest then and there between John Henry and that there drill. The foreman ran that newfangled steam-drill. John Henry, he just pulled out two 20-pound hammers, one in each hand. They drilled and drilled, dust rising everywhere. The men were howling and cheering. At the end of 35 minutes, John Henry had drilled two seven foot holes - a total of fourteen feet, while the steam drill had only drilled one nine-foot hole.

    John Henry held up his hammers in triumph! The men shouted and cheered. The noise was so loud, it took a moment for the men to realize that John Henry was tottering. Exhausted, the mighty man crashed to the ground, the hammer's rolling from his grasp. The crowd went silent as the foreman rushed to his side. But it was too late. A blood vessel had burst in his brain. The greatest driller in the C&O Railroad was dead.

    The program itself is between 16:00 and 18:00 hours. The rest is registration and drinks. We believe the drinks are THE essential part of any event as socialization is the fun part
