NxtMedia brings together for one day, technology entrepeneurs with media actors, such the Norwegian TV broadcaster NRK, the main Norwegian newspapers, International researchers. If we understand how the media sector evolves, we will know how to communicate our ideas to the world. Dear researcher, you (and I) have a responsibility to influence media experts so they choose the best technology that can enable democracy and prevent spreadning of false and negative messages. Dear researcher, you will understand better how the media sector is exploiting evailable data sources and new technology such as Blockchain and Machine Learning to imagine and develop the media of the future.
If you come to NxtMedia you will meet journalists, other International researchers, entrepeneurs. Some talks are given in Norwegian, some in English. It will be possible for the not Norwegian speaking to attend talks and participate to the discussions.
Not least the conference will happen in the amazing Rockheim.
Check for example Eveline Klumper, gruender from the Nederland who will explain how the media sector looks at Blockchain. Check Morten Jacobsen, Responsible for Schibsted Media’s technology brands like Aftonbladet, VG, Aftenposten, Svenska Dagbladet, BT,Stavanger Aftenblad and Fædrelandsvennen. And the NRK research director Kristian Tolonen.

Tutti gli anni il primo Novembre penso alla nonna, la maestra, la mia role model, che mi faceva ridere anche quando diceva il rosario per i Morti. Zappa, zuppa, zenzero. Scrivi ammodo.
Becoming Myself: A Psychiatrist’s Memoir by Irvin D. Yalom
A special book for a special travel. I read it on my mobile phone on the flight from Dubai to Stockolm as my kindle had died in Pakistan after a glorious life of 5 years.
The book reminds me that I have to remind me and other people about the importance of having a network of people around us, not because you will need these people in the future (as somebody interprets the concept of network), but because we need them now, and they need us.
The book refers to many beautiful books, it is about empathy, family, therapy, research, interdisciplinarity, love, emigration, the relationship to your parents. I read it in Italian. I strongly recomend it.
Today my blog has more than 2000 views, record since I started blogging in 2004! While at Arlanda I post some more pictures. I love the pictures with the guardians, I think they also had somehow a good time.
Seldom in my life, I felt so useful and I received so many attentions. I am grateful to everybody and positively surprised by the intelligence and motivation of the Pakistan colleagues, expecially the female students and young teachers. I sit now a Dubai airport, with tears in my eyes and tatoos on my hands.
