From time to time I’m working for events as an event-manager. Back to the basics, that’s what I call this. Not working on content or strategy, just logistics and production. Here it’s all about people’s skills and talking to the different people involved in a project. Bringing everyone on track is one of the most challenging but also most rewarding things I know.
Die diesjährige re:publica fand ich ziemlich gelungen. Ich hatte mir im Vorfeld schon einige Sessions rausgepickt, die ich unbedingt sehen wollte aber vieles ergab sich wie immer auf solchen Konferenzen einfach im “Flow”. Was jetzt genau DAS Highlight war, kann ich gar nicht mehr sagen, dafür kuck ich mir (immer noch!) die Sessions an, die ich nicht live sehen konnte. BigUP RP-Crew: Das Hochladen ging echt fix!
This is what republica sent out today to people who applied at the call for paper:
Please note anyways: the number of speakers (including the moderator) cannot exceed five and at least half of the team should be female – so start to think about alternatives if needed, whilst we go on matching all the fantastic pitches with our grid.
Do you know how I feel now when I got asked to participate at a panel? As QuotenFrau. Am I missing something out here?
Music recommendations is one of my fave topics and I’m always on the hunt for checking out new services. So it was a very big honor to have the possibility to moderate a panel: “The Future of Music is Social” at this crazy event: Campus Party Europe which happened last week in Berlin’s former Airport Tempelhof. (I was also working for it as Ambassador Music and Stagemanager, more about this in the next post) Unfortunately the sound (acoustics) at the panel was really bad. I lost the discussion at a certain stage. But after I watched the video I think its a start of a really cool discussion around the topic: automated vs. human recommendation. Peter Kirn already suggested to make a follow up on this topic via email, which he will publish on create digital music. (love this idea!)
