I’ve kinda neglected the whole topic of IA, UX, etc. this year so that this event’s a good one to refresh my ‘IA skills’ and meet interesting people.
The other interesting IA event is the IA conference in Hamburg with Lou Rosenfeld as a keynote speaker, which is taking place this weekend. As I’m in Berlin this WE anyway and barcamps are for free in contrast to conferences, I’ve decided to go for the UX-Camp only.
Kinda sad though cause my former boss during my BBC internship will give a presentation there and Lou Rosenfeld is the definite IA guy. Let’s just hope there’ll be some video footage.
My fellow IIM student Johannes and I were very lucky and got free tickets for the next09, one of the most important networking and trend conferences within the European web industry, organised by SinnerSchrader.
I guess the both of us wouldn’t have spent the €790 + VAT to attend the event, even though there’ll be the finest speakers one can imagine, including Lee Bryant, the co-founder of Europe’s leading enterprise social computing consultancy Headshift.
I’m really looking forward to the event and especially this year’s topic ‘Share Economy’:
“Share Economy is this year’s theme of next09. This term is shaped by the economy theorist Martin Weitzman. His basic idea: The more we share our success with others, the more we profit ourselves. This applies to humans as well as brands. An outline of the topic and further information can be found in a brief summary of Share Economy.”
Apart from my Tweets, you can expect me to live-blog from the event, thanks to my beloved eee pc ;-)
