Heading to Europe

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named donkey.gifI'm leaving tonight for Copenhagen to participate in the Reboot conference. This will be my third Reboot. It's a very nice group of people, very far away from Silicon Valley, and I always have fun. Looking forward to partying with Thomas and his posse and Paolo, Stowe, and everyone else. I'll be leading a talk on Thursday evening on Rebooting the News.  Permalink to this paragraph

After Copenhagen, I'll spend three days in Berlin, then head back to the US via Chicago on July 1. Permalink to this paragraph

See you on the other side of the world, tomorrow night!  Permalink to this paragraph

PS: I recorded a podcast with Phil Windley of IT Conversations last Monday. A little bit of time has gone by but I think it's pretty good. We talked about the technical side of Rebooting the News. Permalink to this paragraph
