After emailing, calling, tweeting – sometimes plainly stalking – laureates, it was great to meet them in Budapest. My highlights were speaking with Stéphane Horel, on the importance of recognising projects like the Monsanto Papers, because it is difficult to oppose such a powerful corporation alone. And meeting Dragan Bursać, who thought that I pranked him when I called about his nomination, and was moved to tears on stage. 

Besides these encounters, there are more things to be proud of. On the page below are some insights in the media coverage, the photos and the first reach of our keynote speech.
