The aim of this mostly informal meeting is to allow bloggers from the European Union and its neighbors from the East to meet, share ideas and discuss new media developments in their respective countries.
Below are some issues that we think are important and need to be discussed during the unconference. Feel free to add more.
What is the common ground for bloggers and citizen journalists from East and West, what are the vital differences?
What are best case examples that have made a difference to communities?
What are the factors contributing to the success and/or failure of blogs and other new media projects?
How to ensure and improve the safety of commentators from political and commercial interference?
What are the lessons learned from the current malaise of mainstream media?
How will the use of web 2.0 tools enable bloggers to network in a more productive (and more provocative?) way?
Here are the four tracks we plan to have at the unconference. We plan to use this Wiki space to enable participants to indicate which track they would like to join and also contribute the topics they would like to discuss during the event to the event's agenda.
“Citizen Journalism: How and When It works”
“Blogging in Dangerous Places: Security Issues”
“Future of Media: Old vs New”
“Building Successful Web2.0 applications”
Details can be found here. Attendance is limited to 50, of which the first 20 spots appear to be filled.
