English press release: Schedule published, ticket sale started

Culture, politics and technology and daily technology: From April 2nd to April 4th 2008 bloggers and other netizens gather in Berlin at the re:publica’08. Subtitled “the critical mass”, the conference motto represents different aspects of the same complex topic area: the internet and new means of communication increasingly integrate into people’s lives. Web 2.0 applications gain a momentum of their own. Moreover On the other hand the capability of the masses to criticize is in the center of the three-day event.

The keynote will be held by Harvard professor Viktor Mayer-Schönberger of the John F. Kennedy school of government. Titled “Useful forgetfulness” he will raise a few issues, including: How does data protection and privacy work today, in web 2.0 - and how could it work better? Who is in charge? “With Mayer-Schönberger we have one of the most renowned scientists and masterminds in the field of personal and private data on the net” says Markus Beckedahl, blogger of netzpolitik.org fame and founder of the organizer, newthinking communications.

From arts, media and culture to politics and technology as well as to entertainment the re:publica’08 offers a broad spectrum of topics from the digital society. Verena Wiedemann, general secretary of Germany’s national broadcaster ARD will discuss what the tasks of national public broadcasting in the digital age could be. The ARD’s internet strategy will be subject to reality checks. Those who create and form the new web will be able to discuss successes and dead ends face to face with representatives of traditional radio services.

Author and writer Peter Glaser together with Tim Pritlove will be discussing “the critical mass” in a live podcast edition of Chaosradio Express. “We are happy to have found so many interesting speakers fo the event” says Johnny Haeusler of Spreeblick. “Just like the web 2.0 itself the re:publica lives through participation: even during the conference can people submit proposals for new talks and workshops.” Right now a little more than 50 slots in the preliminary schedule are fixed. For April, the organisers expect visitors to be able to choose from more than one hundred talks, discussions and workshops. “The critical mass of events was rather a risk free-enterprise.” says Markaus Beckedahl with a tongue-in-cheek.

Besides representatives from the German-speaking digital world and selected international guests, the conference this year will also feature participants from web 2.0 enterprises, interested visitors and media people who follow the invitation of organisers Spreeblick and newthinking communications. Ticket sale started on Wednesday. Ticket pricing ranges from 60 euro regular fee, 40 euro for bloggers who actually integrate a re:publica’08 banner in their blog, and 100 euro for corporate participants.

The re:publica conference in Berlin takes place for the second time, after an enormously successful first event last year, when over 700 participants attended. re:publica’08 is the only one German conference of this size being organized by bloggers for everyone interested in digital society. The re:publica’08 is supported by the Berlin capital cultural fund.
