Blogging Web 2.0 Expo Europe and how to bring the European Community closer together.
(yes I admit I basically post this to make it easier to share content on the Tech in Europe Friendfeed room. Yes I know.)
[updated – added the link to the Girl Geek Dinner asking for a date you would prefer, added berlinwebweek and closed the link to the blogging programme entry. :) ]
As most of you hopefully know, the Web 2.0 Expo Europe is coming back to Berlin on October 21 til 23rd – but that is not all there is, because there is a whole lot events going so. So much in fact that I am not sure how I will survive them all.
- international Barcamp Berlin 3 (still places for international visitors)
- Facebook Dev Garage
- Ignite Berlin
- Techcrunch UK Meetup (is there a date yet)
- Girl Geek Dinner Berlin (needs a date, your preference?)
- yet unannounced parties
All events can be found on the page: http://berlinwebweek.de
Would like to be part of that crazy week and network and more?
Together with Techweb and O’Reilly Suw, Steph and myself have setup a cool blogging program which will hopefully bring in a great batch of content about and around the expo over the next month. Even more importantly to me: It will bring the European Community way closer and make them exchange thoughts, ideas and dates for barcamps and more! :)
The way the blogging programme will work is that we’ll ask participants to do these few things between now and 6th October:
- publish at least 4 Web 2.0 Expo-related blog posts, podcast episodes or videocasts, e.g. announcement of the event, speaker information, speaker interviews, or any other event-related stuff
- encourage readers, friends, and/or community to register for the event
- display the Web 2.0 Expo logo on their blog, with a link to the registration page, until the day of the conference
We think that’s pretty easy, but to help you along, we’ll provide participating bloggers with:
- event badges
- a 35% discount code to share with readers, colleagues and friends
- access to information about the event suitable for re-blogging, such as announcements and speaker information/interviews (when possible)
- be added to the official blog roll
In return, bloggers will get a full conference pass that to either use themselves or give away to readers.
There is more of course and if you like to join I have set up a simple google form with some question, so if you are interested please add yourself. There are some fields asking you about blog post examples (in case you already did something similar you could show them to us) or to provide a bit more information about you in case it may not be that obvious why you are a good fit for this program. We’re kicking things off on Tuesday September 9th with latest admission a week later.
I am especially still missing some swiss and austrian bloggers. ;)
