It’s been quite hectic lately with both work and travel (and work-related travel, obviously), and there’s more to come. Needless to say, I really enjoy meeting all the interesting folks at events and conferences. I think it’s the best way to learn about new projects and ideas.
So what’s next? Tomorrow there’s OpenEverything, a “global conversation about the art, science and spirit of ‘open’. It gathers people using openness to create and improve software, education, media, philanthropy, architecture, neighbourhoods, workplaces and the society we live in: everything.” It’s a global event with handovers between different locations during the day, I’ll be at OpenEverything Berlin. If I got it right, OpenEverything Hong Kong will handover to Berlin around 10:15am Berlin time. How cool is that?
Next up is LeWeb Paris which I’m really excited about. The Berlinblase crew will be there, so we’ll be covering the event like we did a number of barcamps and Web 2.0 Expo Europe. It’ll be a blast. Drop me a line if you’d like to meet up to tell us about your tool or service in English (for Berlinblase) or in German (for blogpiloten.de), or even better, just to have a cool chat.
For completeness’ sake, even though it’s far in the future, there’s also Re:Publica 09 coming up in early April. This year’s theme is “Shift Happens!”, and it’s all about how social media change the society we live in. Over the last two years re:publica has really established itself as the most important German blogging conference and it’s always great fun.
To get in touch, feel free to use any of these channels. (And please allow me to just re-use this code snippet including the photo. You might have seen it before.) I’d love to meet up!
