This conference is absolutely amazing. I’m impressed by how visionary and idealistic people are when it comes to our digital society. I think all the speakers I listened to at least said something like “Let’s free some data”, “let’s be disruptive”, “let’s believe in a pure digital future” and “let’s take the Internet back”. I like it.
Another great thing about conferences in general is that you get the chance to meet a lot of people and let them inspire you. And yesterday I wandered around at #rp13 and I realized that those ‘meetings’ actually gives you an excellent occasion to produce great content. Look at those pictures – everywhere I found equipment, people making podcasts on the go, filming, writing and photographing. So not only do we need to meet up IRL to connect, but we also need to take advantages of so many passionate people at one place and be content creators together.
Here are some of the great things that I came across as well:
Tweetping – visualizes twitter activity in real time around the globe. Let it run for a while and you will see amazing patterns
Open knowledge Fundation gave a speak about open knowledge – of course! Here is their definition of open data:
“Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike.”
The worlds fastest e-book, a project made on the self-publishing platform epubli.
