It’s time to pack my bags for LeWeb3. And i’d better prepare a bit not to miss something important. The list of speakers and attendees is very promising.
I am really looking forward to David Weinbergers talk on Tuesday. Nicole has a good interview with him, it is worth listening. Besides his well known theories about the changes in that come with the internet – the new organization of knowledge and the Webs „profoundly social” character – he states that future historians might look back on our age saying: the society faced the decision whether to embrace the new openness or to fall back in an new „dark age”. I did not notice this fear from him before, and i currently do not understand where it suddenly comes from. These attempts to restrict the openness have been there all the time, and the Web has been developing nevertheless. Why now?
Also on Tuesday there is a chance to meet the people from last.fm – Felix Miller is speaker and Stefan Glänzer is on the participants list. Thats what a i missed at reboot8 this year.
To be continued…
