I am a Call Bell

I attended an interesting event last week -- a so-called 'Think & Do' session organized by Henry Jenkins and others at the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab on transmedia branding. Participants were asked to bring a physical object as a quick way to introduce ourselves.

Voila, it came to me in the pool (a great place to brainstorm): the one object that combines some of my personality traits (bright, ringing, annoying, hard-to-ignore, know-it-all) with my value in the world, namely calling attention to stuff, which is what we consultants do (and curators, too). All because of the fortuitous encounter with said object on the final panel of the Story World Conference (#SWC12) which had been left behind by Lance Weiler. So I went right out and bought my own.

Ding, indeed! Turns out, everyone wants a call bell. 

(BTW: I'll be posting about Story World soon).

    Nice to read that you also attend that inventive confrence, or meeting or a workshop or whatever it called. Anyhow thats a kind of thing which people should attend more frequently. Because these type of gatherings are very good for us in our real life.

    Thick wood dowel rods are ideal for the support bars between your legs at the top and base of the basket stand.
