I am decidedly a fan of activity days for conferences, as WordCamp Nordic did this past weekend. How often do you travel for work, and never get to see anything beyond your meeting venue?

During activity day, we visited the Oodi Library, a brand new “Central Library and living meeting space”.

It is stunning.

Conscientious thought went into planning a highly collaborative, contemplative place where folx can gather to meet, explore new crafts, and read peacefully. It is a place that inspires one to learn, connect, and grow.
