Right from its first edition, we have been active participants (and fans) of Semiofest, a celebration of semiotic thinking. This event (probably the first in the world about applied semiotics) was born from the Semiotic Thinking Group in Linkedin. Chris Arning, Lucia Neva and Hamsini Shivkumar made it happen: 60 people from over 20 countries met in London in 2012.
This enthusiasm led us to propose Barcelona as the host city for 2013. We won the bid, and along with a group of students from IED (Karitas McCrann, Nicole Castillo, Kimberly O’Donoghue and Arturo Rojas), Gabriela Pedranti organized the second edition, with 75 delegates from over 20 countries.
Ximena Tobi presented her findings on Facebook and radio stations, which she calls “The Mamushka effect”.
Once again, Chris wrote an excellent article about Paris event. Check it here.
