Bettakulcha 8

The eighth Bettakultcha was held in Leeds tonight.  One tweet called it a middle class variety show, which actually sums it up rather nicely. You could also say it’s a bit like Interesting, but an evening ‘do with more beer and less geekery.

I had one of the 5 minutes / 20 slides / 15 seconds per slide speaking slots and chose to talk about why I love lists.  So here’s a list of Five Things I learnt at Bettakulcha VIII:

– Iceland is possibly the most female-friendly country in the world
– suffering from Cystic Fibrosis can be like trying to breathe through a straw
– the plot of Star Wars would work really well as a Mills and Boon novel
– Leeds is better than Manchester
– Kim Jong Il did not invent the hamburger, despite what the entire population of North Korea may have been led to believe

held at the lovely Corn Exchange in Leeds
