Europe’s DLD Conference


I recently learned about a fabulous event in Europe called DLD Conference, which was held in the last couple of weeks in Munich Germany. O’Reilly’s blog has a good recap about one one of the more interesting discussions on-site.

Dale Dougherty writes: “One of the most amazing riffs I’ve ever heard at a conference was created by Martin Varsavksy, the Argentinian-born, Madrid-based entreprenuer behind FON, who was moderater of a panel titled “How To Be Good?” at the DLD Conference in Munich Germany last week. What’s more, the riff led to an even more fascinating exchange with Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT Media Lab, who pontificated on the One Laptop Per Child.”

In addition to a whole new wave of Europeans and others from around the world who are innovating across multiple industry sectors, the event drew many of the well known technology movers and shakers I often seen at top-tier events in the states, including John Markoff, Arianna Huffington, Steven Levy, Nicholas Negroponte, Walt Mossberg, Linda Stone, Caterina Fake, Tim Brown, Esther Dyson, Dan Gillmor, Craig Newmark, Jeff Pulver, and Ann Winblad to name a few.
