PL 13/10: Cracow workshop starts

Filed under: statistics — plinius @ 9:17 am

Today the Project18 workshop starts – at noon – in the Wojewódzka Biblioteka Publiczna w Krakowie.

As an occasional futurist (scenario writer)  I enjoy noting new trends. As a trend-spotter I have noted that places – as well as persons – now promote themeselves through very brief presentations the size of business cards.

The library also does this – marketing itself as tourist attraction – next to cards from restaurants, spas, shops and tours to the salt mines of Wieliczka.

Nice.

Now at 11:15, in my hotel room, I check out the home page, which has a fresh and up-to-date look. The libary is even on Facebook, with 510 friends.

Time to go …

  1. Dear Professor Tord

    It is nice to see that you are in my home country – Poland.
    I wish you have a nice and interesting experience in Krakow, the first capital of our country.

    It nice to hear that people and places in Krakow are using different strategies to promote them self.

    I hope more of the Polish places will take that example to fallow it. One of my – Spanish Training teachers always say – “ You cannot take your grandmother with you to everywhere, you should learn how to speak to your potential customers about yourself”. …

    Have a nice stay and fruitful workshops with the Polish librarians.

    Kind regards from Spain
