Saturday December 6th 2008 the same event at three different locations. More exciting even in three different countries illustrates the significance of the topic it focuses on.  All three event locations try get connected via skype even there will be a huge time differnce because I am talk about three cities on three different continents as well HongKong (China), Berlin (Germany) , Madison (WI, USA)

„Open Everything is 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 about thinking, doing and being open.


Each Open Everything event is different. Topics might include: open business models; running participatory events; the art, science and meaning of open; speedgeek case studies; community engagement; taking open source thinking beyond the tech world; open train wrecks (what went wrong?). What actually gets discussed on the day depends on who shows up, and what they’re passionate about.“

What is Ignite? Once again a new format for a social networking event in 1st life has been established. And once again it was done by the oreilly crew. They called it Ignite so lets see what it is all about. quote left If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. quote right With these speeker conditions 20/15=5 it ensures that talks won’t be boring at all.


More informations can be consumed on the ignite community site which gives you an overview on upcoming ignite sessions. The first one was held one year ago in Seattle here you’ll find some videos of these events. A good one is „hacking chocolate“. ;–)

TECH cocktail Chicago calling

TECH cocktail

Yesterday the next TECH cocktail Chicago #6 was announced by its founders Eric Olsen and Frank Gruber . They invented this event because it appeared to them that there were not enough web events – to connect the community – happening in Chicago. They wanted to get the networking going, to get people meet other people, create new ideas and start new things. Maybe they also wanted to transfer all these networking communities out of 2nd life into 1st life.

What is TECH cocktail?

quote rightTECH cocktail is a series of mixer events with the mission to amplify the technology signal in under served markets and have fun doing it. quote right

It is called mixer because a wide bunch of people like bloggers, technology enthusiasts, coders, developers, marketing people, people in sales, entrepreneurs and sometimes venture capitalists are welcome to participate on TECH cocktail events. Also people that are just interested in photography that want to just post pictures of TECH Cocktail on their blog are there. So it’s definitely a mix.

I guess it is similar to our so beloved webmontag in Germany.  The only difference is that TECH cocktail people try to meet quaterly and the webmontag crowd almost once a month. That actually is the aim of Eric and Frank to give kind of a kick start, so that people organize smaller  meet-ups in between TECH cocktail events. I haven’t figured out yet how the agenda is set up for that event. Well some more work to do I’ll research that issue.

Sponors are still welcome to contact the founders ;-)

Eric Olson: eric [at] techcocktail [dot] com

There is also a nice interview with both founders recorded by Technology Evangelist at TECH cocktail 2 available. It provides some more information about what the event is all about.

Review Barcamp B’lore #4

Barcamp Bangalore #4 (BcB4) was held at the IIM – Indian Institut of Management – great spot.
The first day was kind of confusing but I have not been in a good shape additionally I prefer just barcamping without collectiving. Although it is nice to involve people by providing biking and a photo collective. My favorite was the ‚unband collective‘. their panels gave us some relaxing time in between the panels.

these days are busy and I don’t find time to report on every session I saw. Nevertheless you should get the opportunity to see some pictures. Here you find some remarks at least for the 2nd day of barcamp.

Just created a Technorati account and they want me to claim this:

“re:publica – Leben im Netz”

Es steht ein weiteres Event im 1st Life an. Die re:publica in Berlin. Es ist eine Konferenz welche sich mit dem zur Zeit und bereits seit längerem stattfindenen Umbruch und Paradigmenwechsel in der Netzwelt beschäftigt. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf den kulturellen Aspekten.


Die Verantwortung für Inhalte wird immer weitreichender den Usern des Internet zurückgegeben. Es geht weg vom „read-only“ hin zum „read-write“ web. Ob social-networks, social-bookmarking, wikis, blogs, podcasts, video- und foto-plattformen alle genannten Applikationen bieten dem User die Möglichkeit sich selbst oder ein spezielles Thema darzustellen und darüber zu berichten.

Also es wird bestimmt spannend. Kommt vorbei und partizipert.

Last session for 2006…

… will be „Who can you trust?“. Hinter diesem Titel oder besser diesem Motto verbirgt sich der 23. Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin kurz 23C3. Zwischen Weihnachten und Neujahr wird hier über das Medium Internet und Computer in allen Bereichen des Alltags diskutiert werde. Niggi und ich werden hinfahren und der Ein oder Andere vom Kölner Webmontag ebenfalls. Also wer noch mit möchte, bitte melden! Nicht nur „Die Macht des geteilten Wissens“ auch „Die Macht des geteilten Sprits“ ist eine hoch aktuelle und interessante Thematik die es aufmerksam zu verfolgen gilt.
