Table on tour again

In the beginning of May I wrote a blog post about the coolest project in Sweden. Since then Connecta and Ergonomidesing have been working really hard to finish an application to From Business to Buttons starting in Malmö tomorrow. I have to say that I’m really happy with the result and looking forward to show it to a crowd that probably will be a critical one since the main focus for the conference is user experience. But confident as I am – that will be no problem! The UIX-people on our team has done a great job!

The application that we have built is a music game and I will get back with more details on that after the conference.

The table was supposed to get picked up by DHL yesterday but they failed big time. Apparently some delivery guy from DHL went to Connecta yesterday, didn’t find the table, and then went home. I suppose that he had a bad day and I can’t blame him but he certainly ruined my morning. A phone call at 8.30 from my colleague Marcus: “The table is still here as Connecta, is that a problem?” Panic, stress and gastric ulcer!

DHL says that they are responsible but that they don’t have a car available to drive the table to Malmö. The clock is ticking. A lot of time and money invested in this project. On site set up and deployment today in Malmö and the conference starting tomorrow. What to do?

Urban Falck to the rescue!

A new phone call, this time from another colleague; Urban Falck. Urban is a guy that doesn’t see many problems or obstacles. His solution was: I’ll take the 125 kilo pallet with the Surface table in my tiny car and drive down to Malmö! Hey, it’s only 600 km!

So, the table is in a car and on its way with Urban. Marcus is on site and responsible for the bits and the dice (more on that later) and I’m still in Stockholm. Tomorrow is last day in Pre School for my oldest daughter and then departure to Malmö.

Hope to see you at From Business to Buttons on Friday!
