There are almost 30 events now during the 7 days of the BerlinWebWeek 2012, a new record I think. Yes, I know, too many to visit them all, however, on the other hand just enough so that everybody should be able to found his/her favourite. Here is the complete list and here per day:
3. Investors’ Dinner Berlin 2012
betapitch the next start up call
2. mobilbranche.de Mobilisten-Talk
Social Media: Chancen und Gefahren
Celebrate the Hashtag
Paymentwall Berlin Series
Spotify Tech Talk
Berlin Geekettes meet Digital Media
Only 16 days to go – then Berlin Web Week 2012 will start. I am really looking forward to it! Our trailer for 2012 is out – we will update it as soon as we have new material from the actual events of 2012.
I love Charles Stross‘ work in general, particularly his crazy books about the singularity. However, I recommend to follow his blog, if you are into literature, tech and the occasional rant about modern politics.
His recent post was about Amazon, their disruption of the book business and the only chance he sees the big publishing houses have in staying in business for the long term: the end of DRM on their books. I think he is right in his view on his very own industry. …an industry he thinks is developing towards a monopoly AND monopsony at the same time (look at the state of the industry in the USA). Anyway if he turns out to be right, I look forward to “own” the electronic books I “bought” for my kindle again and maybe even switch the platforms from time to time.
I really look forward to the BerlinWebWeek 2012: the digital conferences NEXT Berlin and re:publica cooperate under the roof of the 5th Berlin Web Week, which will take place between the 2nd and the 9th of May 2012. With this BerlinWebWeek is on the way to become the biggest festival of the digital scene in Europe. re:publica will start the festival from the 2nd to the 4th of May, the NEXT Berlin will close the festival from the 8th to the 9th of May. Part of BerlinWebWeek will be also the partner events such as European Venture Market and StartupWeekendBerlin, the Heureka Conference, the Informare and others. More than 6000 participants are expected for these key events.
You are invited to be a part of it! Please contact us if you would like to participate with your event in Berlin during that time.
