Virtually Connecting at re:publica #rp18 #rpPOP

Virtually Connecting is coming to Berlin, Germany, with a first time at the re:publica conference #rp18. Here’s what the conference organizers say about re:publica:

re:publica in Berlin will take place from 2 to 4 May 2018. […] Since its foundation in 2007, it has grown from a cozy blogger meeting with 700 participants into a wide-ranging ‘society conference’, with 9.000 visitors at the eleventh edition of re:publica 2017 in Berlin. Representatives of digital culture share their knowledge and decision-making tools, and discuss the future of the information society. Here they can mingle with artists, activists, scientists, hackers, entrepreneurs, NGOs, journalists, social media and marketing experts, and many others. […] around 46 percent of re:publica 2017’s speakers were female – far more than at many other similar events.”

What is Virtually Connecting?

If you are new to Virtually Connecting, think of it as a hallway conversation at a conference, but online and live-streamed via YouTube, thus giving others from the outside the opportunity to engage with speakers and guests, to add their voices to the mix and to get a sense of conversations and the overall atmosphere at the conference site.
