Early this morning, the Web 2.0 Expo Berlin conference kicked off with sessions ranging from an Adobe AIR bootcamp to software development collaboration techniques.
This event is not only for tech geeks, though: if youâ€™re involved in organizational communication in any way â€“ whether itâ€™s marketing, PR, internal communication, whatever â€“ youâ€™ll find much at this three-day event thatâ€™s relevant to your role as a communicator.
Whatever your interest in Web 2.0, thereâ€™s something for everyone in Berlin during the next three days.
In addition to the conference, thereâ€™s the expo, a parallel exhibition that showcases the Web 2.0 technologies, tools and services that aim to help organizations drive productivity, customer relationships and sales.
I would have loved to have been there but couldnâ€™t do it. I did have a free ticket â€“ courtesy of the blogger connector programme I took part in â€“ that I offered as a prize in a contest on the FIR podcast.
We announced the winner in FIR #388 on October 13 â€“ Ronna Porter! Congrats again, Ronna.
But even though I wonâ€™t be there myself, I will try to participate via the Crowdvine social network thatâ€™s been set up. Indeed, anyone can register and join this network, so if youâ€™re interested from afar, jump on board.
Thereâ€™s also the blog. You can participate on Twitter if you follow w2e_europe08. And there is plenty going on at the edge, so to speak. Just check the community site.
Thereâ€™s so much happening on so many radars that you canâ€™t really miss anything.
