Marc Thiele on beyond tellerrand

.net: What does the name mean, beyond tellerrand?
Marc Thiele: The name is a mix of the English word “beyond” and the German phrase “ber den Tellerrand schauen,” which means “Think outside the box”. It expresses the aim of everybody involved to look a bit further, look beyond the edge. It also reflects the global perspective of the event.

.net: This is the first year you’ve run beyond tellerrand but you've organised a German Flash conference for 11 years. Why did you see the need for a new conference?
Marc Thiele: Good question. Organising the events was always driven by my interest in the things the speakers are talking about on the event. So in a way it’s a bit selfish of me: I invite speakers – often friends – that I want to see, and invite other people to watch them.
