The other day Paul Houghton and Ricardo Brito kindly invited me to Futurice’s Berlin HQ to record the second issue of their #IoT podcast The Thingcast, where we chatted about IoT, ThingsCon and the Berlin tech scene.
SinnerSchrader, the good folks behind the conference NEXT Berlin (where I’m a program director), just published a bit of an outlook for some of the most relevant emerging technologies for the coming year.
BrandEins is one of these rare publications that – starting the moment it appeared – made the media landscape a little better just by virtue of being there. Strictly speaking, it’s a German economics magazine, but that doesn’t do it justice. It’s more like the stories behind economic notions, entrepreneurs, ideas, all told and explained with core values and a bit of an attitude.
We just published a second issue of our (roughly) semi-annual printed magazine Connected.
In this issue of Connected, we focus on a subset of the Internet of Things (IoT): Wearables. Between fitness trackers, health devices and smart watches, there is a lot happening in the space that warrants a closer look at the devices, services and players, as well as at the larger implications on our lives and the industry.
This printed 16-page newspaper features contributions by Josh Clark, Neil Clavin, Gwen Elliot, Raph Crouan, Liza Kindred, Adrian McEwen, Mark Simpkins, Scott Smith, Ashley Tyler, as well as Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Ana Bradley and Peter Bihr. It was designed by Tristam Sparks.
Max Krüger and I teamed up to write a handbook for indie conference organizers. In fact, that’s the name of the book: The Indie Conference Organizer Handbook – A practical guide to running your very own indie conference.
A brief update: Alex and I are taking our print publication about the Internet of Things to the next level. More content, more people, more focus. Find out everything about our new team member, a new newsletter and more at makeitconnected.com
