DMMK: The Internet is not about Technology

I am in Berlin today for this year's DMMK (= German multimedia congress). On the stage right now is Nikesh Arora, Vice President, European Operations with Google, who's giving the audience a little pep talk on what the Internet is really about:
Don't say its the "Internet". That's too technically. Say it's one billion connected people, you can interact with. That's what it is...

Time for a Reboot

Again, it's the beginning of June and again it's time for a reboot. I'm currently in Copenhagen for the 2006 edition of the reboot conference. The theme this year is "renaissance?" - rebirth. Quite appropriate - especially the question mark, as we all wait for our net connection to be reborn. It's pretty crappy right now. So no live blogging. But perhaps things get better over the day. Keep fingers crossed...

WOMday videocast is online

Two weeks ago, I did a presentation on "CorporateCommunications 2.0" at the WOMday in Munich, organized by TRND. Now a short videocast about the whole event is available (German only)...

Btw, right now, I'm at SinnerSchrader's web 2.0 conference next10years, which marks the agency's 10th anniversary. Pretty impressive speakers list, very well organized so far and the sessions will be made available for download next week. Lots of interesting events these days... even here in Germany...

This year's Digital Lifestyle Day will take place on Monday and Tuesday next week. Once again, the organizers from Hubert Burda Media have put together a very impressive agenda. For Germany, the DLD is by far the most interesting event in this field and I really can't wait to get to Munich!! So, see you there ! Or if can't be there, check out the conference podcast and the DLD06 tag on Flickr...

My photoset on Flickr...

Unfortunately I didn't find the time to blog about it. But according to Technorati a lot of other people did quite extensively and Flickr got over 4000 pictures. Wow.

Mark Lloyd has posted a good summary on his Without Prejudice blog. Dennis Howlett has done a 26 minutes long podcast with "a compilation of comments and thoughts" from Les Blogs. And last but not least here is a great meme map from Peter Forret (all via Loic):

Btw, does anybody know if the official video recordings are already available somewhere ?

Back from rebooting successfully

I'm back from Copenhagen and reboot7. It was really an inspiring experience. I met many interesting people from all over the world, learnt about new things, I haven't seen before and last, but not least had a lot of fun. What more can you ask for ? Well, how about a weaker Danish Crown !? ;-)

Thanks to Thomas Madsen-Mygdal and the whole reboot team for putting together such a great event! I'm sure we are all looking forward to reboot8 next year... Technorati Tags:
