Week 82

We got two exciting weeks full of conferences and events ahead of us.

Berlin Web Week

We don’t exist in a vacuum. People all around us are doing amazing things and provide progressive thinking. We couldn’t do any of our work without a growing network of collaborators. That’s why we’re getting pretty excited about the upcoming two weeks when a big crowd of geeks and tinkerers will descend upon Berlin for a large number of conferences and events. The city buzzing with passionate people is how we like it best.

As we mentioned here before, we’ve been heavily involved in the curation of this years’ edition of the NEXT conference. Peter and Igor have been putting the finishing touches on the programs for their stages. It’s looking mighty good with a lot of people we’re really looking forward to hear speak.
Also, check out the video profiles, our friends at Freunde von Freunden did for NEXT speakers Caroline Drucker and Jeremy Tai Abbott

We’ve also got our own event in collaboration with Hybrid Plattform, coming up right after NEXT called Digitale Selbstvermessung. As we did with CoCities, we love to introduce a fresh topic (like Quantified Self with this one), that we think is going to get really big, to a wider audience. Sign up now for one of the last free seats available (conference language is German).

You can also meet us at republica12 this week and many other events. Please, feel always welcome to say hi.
