Impressions from DLD

Just came back from 3 incredible days at DLD. The conference (hosted by our friends from Burda) is getting better each year and has definitely become the premier European conference for digital media. The first day was a bit slow but day 2 and 3 had a range of highlights: a social networking panel with all of the big guys (Facebook, Linkedin, Bebo, Xing), a very interesting discussion of human versus algorithmic search with Jason Calacanis and Jimmy Wales and comments from Marissa Meyer (see Techcrunch coverage here – isn’t Google human after all?), Shai Agassi’s presentation of his new venture Better PLC) and the Exploding Media session with Jeff Jarvis, Bradley Horowitz, Peter Hirshberg and Marissa Meyer. All in all a fantastic event with great networking and really interesting panels. Only drawback: the conference location HVB Forum is getting a bit packed but I guess this is a good problem to have.
