#rpDUB is up and we're moving straight along. Today, at 13:00, we're kicking off the ticket sale for re:publica 2017 and #MCB17. If you're quick about it, you can secure one of the sought-after Early Bird-Tickets!
Our first international event went spectacularly! On 20 October 2016, over 200 participants converged on re:publica Dublin in order to attend sessions on three stages. There's more! The next re:publica Belrin in May 2017 will take place under the motto “Love out Loud”.
We've only just celebrated our tenth anniversary at re:publica TEN, and now it continues – in Ireland! The very first re:publica outside of Germany is taking place today, October 20th, 2016. It's been a long journey for us, too: We started out out with a cozy gathering of just 700 bloggers in 2007 – back then we still addressed each other by our Twitter handles.
In our three-part series, our media partner euro | topics examines some of the issues relevant to Ireland – and to Europe as a whole. The third and last part is about the question whether social media corporations should cooperate with security agencies in the fight against terrorism, and to which extent.
Another highlight at re:publica Dublin this Thursday, hosted in cooperation with our partner, Goethe-Institut Ireland, and the NGO Digital Rights Ireland: “Privacy and Data Protection in the Digital Age” addresses the role of digital technologies in undermining human rights.
At re:publica TEN, some of “Die Bösen Wölfe” (Bad Wolves) were already in action: Three camera teams, made up of ten kids and teens equipped with microphones and cameras and guided by adults, were on the go, reporting and conducting video interviews throughout the event. Read some of the kids' personal accounts here.
In our three-part series, our media partner euro | topics examines some of the issues relevant to Ireland – and to Europe as a whole. Part two focuses on the implications of Brexit for the digital economy in the UK and Europe.
The vision of a decentralized web collides with the legal structures of today. But whose problem is that, and who is in charge of creating an interface between these forces? These questions are a pressing matter for #rpDUB speaker Shermin Voshmgir, and a central aspect of her upcoming talk.
