I am going to the Web2.0 Expo in Berlin. It is the first time that I participate in person in an O’Reilly conference, after having been an observer and commenter of the Web2.0 conferences, and am very much looking forward to it. The energy is apparent already!
Web2.0 eats its own dog food, luckily, so there is a very good social network that lets attendees connect, organizing the links by interest, and facilitating the communication after the conference as well. Made be CrowdVine, this network belongs to the new breed of web2.0 applications which understand the importance of open data, allowing you to export all you input, and the network you created. I will sound hard to satisfy, but now it’s the time to move further on, and allow people to export not just a list of contacts, but the second order knowledge that the interconnections between them, and the conversations, comments create. 🙂
