Identity Camp, Bremen 6-7th of June
People interested in privacy and data protection in Germany seem to be much more likely to be open to english / international than other areas in Germany, so it comes at no surprise that the Identitycamp in Bremen is setup to be a bilingual one from the beginning.
Identitycamp Bremen will be the first Barcamp in Germany that focuses on identity 2.0, single-sign-on, reputation management, relationship management, privacy 2.0 and related issues. It will take place in Bremen in Northern Germany … currently, we aim for a capacity of about 100 participants.
IdentityCampBremen is being prepared by an informal network around Identity and Privacy in cooperation with the Bremen Innovation Agency BIG – Die Wirtschaftsförderer.
Who should come?
- web professionals
- identity architects
- privacy protectors
- people who run social networks
- Community Manager(s)
- IT lawyers
Yes, we no know that the European Soccer Championship starts on the same weekend. We will make sure the soccer fans will not miss the games.
We are still looking for kind folks who want to help us with planning of content, documentation (videos, pictures, streams), with setting up and with everything else that needs to be done.
This will be an interesting event, especially in relation to recent ‘advancements’ introduced by the German government which are handled in court now.
Co-organizer Ralf Bendrath blogs about his “thoughts and observations of a privacy, security and internet researcher and activist” in much better detail and eloquence than I will ever do, so please head over there. ;)
And while I have my issues with German Barcamps (more with the lack of interest by many to evolve and be challenged / challenging), this is one I am looking forward to, as this content wise should an event like a Barcamp are supposed to be: go in, have fun, but also learn a lot and be challenged in your thinking.
