reboot8 "renaissance?"

Tuesday, March 28, 2006

It's time for reboot8, which this year will take place in Copenhagen on June 1- 2 (Thursday and Friday). Same venue; better food; dinner, lounge and entertainment the first evening. More conversation; More Europeans doing interesting things; and still as informal and open an atmosphere as always, hopefully...


The theme for reboot8 is "renaissance?" - as in renaissance-question-mark. As in renaissance = rediscovery and revitalization. Question mark because it's a big word and a question to explore whether it's real, but renaissance because it seems as a healthier and more challenging perspective than the current bubble easy-reality buzzwords currently flowing around. So reboot8 is like reboot7 a journey into the interconnectedness of creation, participation, values, openness, decentralization, collaboration, complexity, technology, p2p, humanities, connectedness and many more areas. Applied towards us as individuals, citizens, teachers, culture workers, entrepreneurs, creators and change makers.

It feels like we more should think a lot about the emerging new models and how we can help shape them, instead of focusing on how the new models are superior to the current models.

Unlike previous years there isn't a final speakers list or a black box creation model. reboot is a platform for bringing the European community together, a platform for conversations and relationships, a platform for sharing visions and meeting the people you didn't think you'd meet.

So the platform is all yours, and this is an invitation to participate and help co-create reboot..:

- an invitation to submit topics you would like on the agenda for reboot - an invitation to submit pointers to interesting people you know in your country that has something to contribute, and help us recruit them to come - an invitation for your proposal to host or present if you've been doing some interesting thinking the last year or have created something that's worth sharing. - an invitation for you to help make sure that we have the people that have open minds and are ready to make a difference at reboot. to connect europe, to widen the community, to add perspective.
