music recommendations: a panel at Campus Party Europe:

Posted by: on Aug 27, 2012 | No Comments

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!) Read more about our discussion and watch the video after the jump –>
