August 14, 2006
(doors open at 6.30pm, presentations start at 7.30pm)
Web Monday is an informal gathering (in and around Germany) aimed at bringing together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, researchers, web pioneers, inventors, bloggers, podcasters, end users and other folks interested in web 2.0 (in the broadest sense). The goal is to better connect the German web 2.0 scene as well as improve transatlantic idea exchange between Germany and the US (and – hopefully – help bring some of those good Silicon Valley vibes to Germany).
Since its inception in November 2005, Web Monday has spread fast: meetings are now being held in a number of German cities on a regular basis (among them 7 of the nation's top 10 biggest) and have attracted several hundred repeat participants so far (see statistics).
Anyone involved in web 2.0 or neighboring fields who has an interest in German-US business (or any kind of “bridging” between the two, for that matter) is most welcome to join. Whether you are from Germany and live and work here in Silicon Valley (and want to help spread the love), or whether you are from Silicon Valley and have ties to Germany – Web Monday Silicon Valley is your chance to present your product, your service, your startup, your cool new project or your next big idea to a growing audience of German web aficionados.
We plan to serve drinks and light snacks (we may ask for a small contribution from those who can afford it).
Demos, presentations, talks…
* “Building wiki applications with TWiki” - how non-programmers can build custom tailored wiki applications supporting their daily workflow. (By Peter Thoeny - if he is at the event in time, and if there is time) (next time)
Depending on the situation we may head over to Gordon Biersch (or whatever is available) for drinks afterwards.
I'll be here for sure!
I'd really like to go but I'm not sure yet if I can make it.
I can't come but will follow the evening via the web.
Things to take care of beforehand.
This may or may not include the following:
For the June 12 event, some good people *cough* donated the food and drinks. Total revenue was USD 27. I was able to secure the cash and will be happy to spend it towards this next event. (Tim)
