Intro

DLD (Digital – Life – Design) is a global conference network that creates conversations on innovation, digital media, markets, science and culture. It is an experience, a creative fireplace for ideas and people. The DLD Book gives you a visual memory of the three days in Munich we shared in January 2011. It is a big thank you to all who made DLD11 so special. Enjoy!

the meantime DLD  Inbecome “has a wonderful brand where at the very beginning of the year people will meet and discuss about the future of media.

 ”

Hubert Burda | DLD Co-Chairman

Chairmens’ Welcome DLD describes the new image of our world, a world which has changed so much in the last decade. Due to globalization and the digital revolution, we live in a ‘Schwellenzeit’ in which markets, media, technology and society are changing profoundly. Places where entrepreneurs, scientists and artists meet to exchange are places of advanced learning and creative 1

connection. This is what DLD is about – a university and platform for ideas and new businesses. Hubert Burda

There is no better way to start the new year than by meeting old friends and making some new ones. The DLD family is gathering once again to say hello, exchange views, spend time together, get some food for thought from some of the best minds on earth, and have a good laugh. Virtual Pokes are nice, but looking at friendly face you missed for a year are miracles – seize the moment and cherish it! Yossi Vardi

tion – it’s about the quality of news and information, and that quality is crucial to keep democracies vital. On the other hand, Hubert Burda says that there are two different sides of the business – the traditional media, and the new model where the audience also becomes the publisher. He mentions that Hubert Burda Media

content models regarding the iPad, Arthur Sulzberger Jr. thinks that they needed to try things, learn and adapt. He is also seeing a new willingness of people to pay for something they’re interested in when it comes to apps. At the end of the discussion, Hubert Burda says that newspapers will last longer than some might think, but that media companies have to take their profits and invest it into new markets and ideas.

The Big Picture Nikesh Arora, Jim Breyer, Thomas Ebeling, Reid Hoffman, Paul-Bernhard Kallen, Yossi Vardi, Kara Swisher In times of transition, this panel of industry leaders comes together to draw “The Big Picture” while the tag team moderators Kara Swisher (AllthingsD) and Yossi Vardi are playing rhetoric ping pong with one another. The panellists Nikesh Arora (Google), Jim Breyer (Accel), Thomas Ebeling (ProSiebenSat.1 Media), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), and Paul-Bernhard Kallen (Hubert Burda Media) discuss the chances and challenges of the digital industry in the next years from their different point of views. Jim shares his outlook about the future of the US economy and Silicon Valley. Accel Partners has already twice as many partners in Beijing than in Paolo Alto. This trend, and thus Accels’ investments, will continue. Another big topic is the change induced through tablet devices. While their positive transformational power for publishing houses is recognised in consensus, their role regarding TV screens is viewed differently. 1

More dimensions of the big picture include the distribution of the advertisement budget and revenue, the future of traditional media companies and the impact of smartphones.

Potlatch Society Corrine Hunt, Martin Roth In an interview with Martin Roth, General Director of the Art Collection of Dresden, Corinne Hunt, a first nation designer, artist and anthropologist, explains the special ceremony of her tribe: Potlatch is a festival ceremony practised by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast in Canada. It is basically a gathering of people to share goods. It’s about giving and receiving gifts in order to redistribute wealth. It was

Mask – Cannibal Bird

forbidden by the Canadian Government from 1884 until 1959, today it is thriving stronger than ever thanks to Social Media. Corinne states that it was very hard to have a continuing culture for First Nations, but that it got easier with the Internet: Traditional songs are shared online, children can learn the lines and videos of the traditional Potlatch-dances published on 2

YouTube. “First nation tribes are very good Facebook users too”, she says, “because we come from small villages and it is difficult to travel. Facebook has given us a new life.”

Moreover, Potlatch is a metaphor for Internet services. The underlying principle of giving and taking constitutes your social status on Facebook as well as opening the access to services such as freemail. The more you give, the more you get.

Art Project Cerith Wyn Evans, Hans Ulrich Obrist DLD considers the logic of arts as a filter and catalyst for innovation, creativity and alternative thinking. Thus DLD is constantly working with artists and presents their work at DLD conferences. In 2011 the DLD Arts project “CWELED4DLD” by Cerith Wyn Evans, presented a series of multi-coloured, inconsistently programmed LED badges. They were available for all participants and visitors. Cerith Wyn Evans began his career as a video and filmmaker in the 1980s. Since the 1990s, his work could be characterized by its focus on language and perception, as well as by its precise, conceptual clarity. Wyn Evan’s practice incorporates 2

a wide range of media, including installation works, sculptures, photography, film and text.

Disruption Talk Paulo Coelho, Sean Parker Paulo and Sean get together for the disruption talk about content and platforms. Paulo reflects on how humanity transformed its way to tell stories. He believes, “the power is still in the hands of those who create content. To change peoples minds, you have to say something.” Sean discusses the relationships between content and technological platforms. For him, it is true that people who control the platforms have some power, but those who create content are still controlling the course of developments. In this sense, people like Paulo are more powerful. The pink elephant in the room was The Social Network. “There are no Victoria Secret Models in Silicon Valley, I wish my

Aenne Burda Award Natalie Massenet, Maria Furtwängler-Burda With ‘Net-A-Porter’, fashion visionary Natalie Massenet founded the biggest luxury fashion portal for women on the Internet. For her pioneering work, she is awarded with the Aenne Burda Award for Creative Leadership at DLD11. The Pallas Athena statue is handed over by actress and DLDwomen chairwoman Maria Furtwängler-Burda. In her laudatory speech, she highlightes Massenet’s willpower: “You did not wait until someone called you into a corporate board – you made it yourself.” When Natalie Massenet set up a designer fashion portal for women ten years ago in London, she first came across scepticism; the luxury labels were not convinced about her idea to sell high fashion on the Internet. Regardless, Natalie Massenet silenced all critics and now sells shoes, clothes, accessories, and handbags from designers such as Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Balmain on the online portal Net-A-Porter. In April 2010, though, Massenet sold her share in Net-A-Porter to the Swiss firm Richemont luxury but remains 1

chairwoman. Moreover, “Mr. Porter”, a luxury portal for men, was launched in February 2011. Since 2006, the award pays homage to Aenne Burda, the visionary entrepreneur who turned a small publishing house into one of the world’s largest fashion pub-

Fashion Margareta van den Bosch, Scott Galloway, Natalie Massenet, Vanessa Friedman What is the use of crowdsourcing for fashion brands? Moderator Vanessa Friedman (Financial Times) gets together with Natalie Massenet (Net-A-Porter), Margareta van den Bosch (H&M), and Scott Galloway (NYU) to talk about digital opportunities in fashion. The main discussion focuses on the question whether the customers still want strong curators or prefer bringing in their own ideas and designs. Margareta believes it has to be a mixture of both, fresh external input and internal expert knowledge. Acknowledging the opportunities of customization, Natalie mentions the choice of a thousand variations for a trench coat or the possibility to reorder things out of old collections as well as a better predictability of sales. On the other hand, Scott doesn’t see crowdsourcing as a huge field for luxury brands to soon – yet many of them have to learn to communicate with their customers. He rather sees the importance of crowdsourced marketing – especially the most successful tool to boost sales: user reviews on the website.

George Whitesides | Virgin Galactic

But this has since changed and people of means have been buying space trips to the ISS. Virgin Galactic is steadily approaching the possibility of space travel for the masses. 250,000 USD for a space trip is still not exactly comparable to an intercontinental flight, but the price will decrease as soon as the technology gets more advanced. George speculates that it might even be the same price as an SUV in five years time. With more private money, the possibilities will increase while the price will sink. Responding to Spencer’s question if governments should get out of the space business completely, George believes that NASA and ESA should be responsible for the exploration and

TRON: LEGACY Daniel Simon Nearly three decades after the original Tron movie blew our minds with its black-light look, computer-generated imagery has radically altered filmmaking. Now the sequel of the original sci-fi movie has been produced and has again set new visual standards. At DLD 2011, Marcel Reichart (DLD) interviews Daniel Simon (Cosmic Motors) about Tron: Legacy and his contribution to create and design the vehicles for the iconic movie. In 2005, he founded Daniel Simon Studio that offers design services to clients within the automotive industry as well as movie studios. In parallel, Daniel

In his work process, he deconstructed the designs by concept artist David Levy to nuts and bolts and worked on all the details. When recomposing the elements, he balanced between paying homage to Syd Mead’s original designs and putting his own ideas into his work.

Macrowikinomics

Don Tapscott What is wrong with the world, and how do we fix it? In his new book Macrowikinomics, Don Tapscott takes his innovation-through-Wikification approach to the next level. According to Don, we need to reboot our institutions, like financial services, newspapers, and many others. He takes us on a quick tour, demonstrating how our institutions are unable to face the kind of challenges that a global, strongly interconnected society faces: universities are losing their monopoly over higher education, newspapers bring us comfort rather than news. “Our systems for global problemsolving are stalled.” The answer: Collaboration! He gives an outlook on how interconnected intelligence might look like and if our intelligence can be shared on a global scale. In this new age of networked intelligence, businesses and communities are bypassing crumbling institutions. In conclusion, mass communications are being used to revolutionize the way we work, live, learn, create and care for one another.

DLD11 participants had the chance to become part of a Lipdub, a crowd足 sourced music video. Participants sang and acted along with the lyrics of the song Footloose, lip-syncing and using props and costumes that were collected before hand. It was a one-shot video, that was the challenge and the fun!

Advertising Beyond Click Linda Abraham, Samir Arora, Mark Read, Christoph Schuh, David Kirkpatrick Are clicks still the right metric for the measurement of online ads? Linda Abraham kicks off the discussion, talking about a study ComScore did on ad-clicks in the German market. The surprising outcome: Virtually nobody clicks, 99 percent of ads are ignored by the users, and accordingly the click-through-rate is decreasing. The small percentage that clicks, is interested in ads from fields, such as: Gambling, Career Services, Education and Health. But: Digital ad campaigns do have an impact on brand building that is comparable to TV. Trademark search queries go up and sales are driven by +27% online and +17% offline. Result: We have to look at awareness, sales, engagement and interaction as well. Christoph Schuh explains that from the 75 billion dollars in the digital advertising market, only 10 billion are booked on branding, and 50 billion are coming from search. The general opinion on the panel is that digital brand building works well and has to be integrated as a measure. WPP Digital CEO Mark Read adds that possibly the usual banners are not the right thing. He suggests

that richer formats and better integration with other media are needed. Moreover, the relation between money spent on search and display needs to be changed, says Mark. Concluding this would lead to a fairer share between publishers and advertisers. He proposes that “2011 is supposed to be the year of video”. More precisely, moving images and music are much more engaging and brand building, and that eventually, digital will be the lead media. Samir Arora talks about the fundamental change in the last years; pretty much everyone became a consumer of this medium. Consumers are way more engaged than before, where people only read about the development of the Web. The same shift happened to businesses: Today brands know what strategies they want and need. Everyone has to understand the fact that there is a revolution for a complete reprogramming of consumption by consumers. This is how Web 2.0 works, explains Samir. Glam Media found out, that people who spend the most time engaging with content also spent the most on products, but clicked the least. They build on engaging ads as a first step and social feeds as a second part.

Appland europe Ilja Laurs, Andrej Nabergoj, Igor Pusenjak, Peter Vesterbacka, Dean Takahashi Dean Takahashi, who covers video games for VentureBeat, leads this panel through a discussion about the state of gaming and the enormously growing app economy. Dean provides the stat that “in just two and a half years Apple has had more than 10 billion downloads from the app store.” The games made by the present panellists include Angry Birds and Doodle Jump, two apps that broke all records of success. Still, Peter Vesterbacka, for instance, has developed endless games without success until he finally came up with Angry Birds. Surprisingly, the competition for these app gaming companies does not necessarily lie within their own industry but is with toy companies. Responding to the question how money is made in this industry, Ilja Laurs points out: “There are only two sources of money. One is consumers buying your things within the app economy. The other is advertising coming into the economy”. Here, the platforms differ vastly – much more money is spent on the iOS platform than on Android. Rounding off the panel, unisono predictions are made for 2011: ongoing growth of downloads and continuous expansion of Android.

René Schuster | Telefónica O2 Germany

Mobile Strategies René Schuster Kicking off the session, René Schuster (Telefónica O2 Germany) gives insights into the expanding mobile App industry and the upcoming megatrends he sees in the future. Under the motto ‘App your life’ he sets the focus on Apps easing the lives of customers and businesses. He highlights

1 The future of payments: Pay on the go with your smartphone

that the relationship between business and customer is changing by constant assessment and product rating. For example, shoppers are able to read product reviews right in the shop through smartphones. One key megatrend is the ‘near field communication chip’. It offers the possibility to pay bills via the smartphone. This invention will “free us from the hustle of carrying cash and coins”, explains René. Another striking trend is the new mobile network LTE (Long Term Evolution). According to him, “The data transport speed of mobile devices will be 30 times faster than they are today”. Research of IDC backs his prediction that the new app world will bring along endless opportunities for a huge market: “Global revenues from app sales alone will reach 35 billion dollars by 2014”. This equals seven times the revenue of 2010.

Spotlight Dan Rose, David Kirkpatrick Nobody has used the Internet as the two-way communication that it really is, says Dan Rose; “Facebook finally tries to leverage that potential.” He joined the company in 2006, coming from Amazon where he was responsible for the development of Kindle. In his spotlight talk with David Kirkpatrick The Facebook Effect, he points out there are already 2.5 million websites that integrated Facebook on their sites. In the long run, it is more

likely that Facebook will further develop outside on linked pages rather than on their own site. The integration of social plugins such as the “Like”-button bears huge potential for external sites. Reportedly, it is bringing traffic up significantly. He stresses that Facebook is the first social network using word of mouth to deliver news: people read the news because friends recommended it them. Being asked for the importance of getting into the retail market, Dan comments that Amazon and Ebay have already integrated Facebook plugins on their sites some months ago. Finally, he explains the positive correlation of time spent on FB and sales and confirms the companies’ interest in retail. Dan foresees that 2

Design Mobile Felix Petersen, Albert Shum, Claude Zellweger, Fred Vogelstein “Phones become our primary computer devices, so user interface and content needs to evolve,” Fred Vogelstein of WIRED magazine inaugurates the session. The panellists Felix Petersen (Nokia), Albert Shum (Microsoft) and Claude Zellweger (One & Co/HTC) all agree on the fact that phones are very personal devices. “Your phone is your companion and you would not leave home with­out it” thinks Albert. Consequently, the development of manufacturing hard and software of phones needs to concentrate on this bond. “In order to get smart, a phone needs to anticipate what you’re about to do”, Claude continues. Therefore hard and software must be in line. This requires that the hardware is designed accordingly to what the phone absorbs from different industries, be it cameras or music players. Further, Felix adds that ‘soon we will see services designed around the category of ‘us’”, which questioned how services change if we all use it together at the same time. At the end, Albert wraps up that ‘it is all about creating better, connecting experiences and anticipating what the end-user wants.’

Let it rise

1 Salesforce Cloud 2 Initiative: Cloud 2 represents the new generation of real-time enterprise applications that are social, mobile, and built in the cloud

Marc Benioff, Padmasree Warrior, Dan Reed, Ludwig Siegele “Cloud computing is one of the most hyped stories of the last few years,” finds Ludwig Siegele (The Economist). Letting the session rise, Marc Benioff starts talking about the shift in cloud computing. The CEO of salesforce.com states that the world has moved from “cloud one” to “cloud two”. He defines cloud one as: using a desktop computer, clicking on a mouse button, being unaware of other people’s location. Now, in cloud two, people are using touch screens to control their computers, always knowing where their friends are and using mobile devices instead of desktop computers. Marc says it had been a “huge, incredible leap” from pulling to pushing information. The new cloud is easy to use, fast, social, mobile and open. Salesforce’s actual software focuses on the concept of ubiquity and compatibility. It looks like Facebook, but has a lot of data integrated. You can not only see your colleagues

how we access and process information. In the past, it was about generating and granting access to information. “Now, there is an overload of information – and we have to focus on the value that can be created out of specific information,” she points out. In this new world – Padmasree calls it “The Networked Economy 2.0” – experts should be able to play multiple roles in a company. That goes along with a new concept of these experts together. She is convinced that video is going to play a much bigger role in the future of cloud computing, and

However, he says there is a danger of “future shock” when technology develops too fast and people can’t really follow. He sees cloud computing as a way to assist people in their daily lives. “How do we use computers to enable creativity?” he asks. For him cloud computing should be like an assistant to you. “It makes you look better than you really are. It understands your emotional context, and helps you to be pro­ ductive.” Dan concludes that using the data force of cloud

Open Innovation Beth Comstock, Marissa Mayer, Kohei Nishiyama, Jens Martin Skibsted, Linda Tischler Open Innovation is the concept of fostering innovation by applying the open source paradigm. Including two global corporations and two design-focused firms, the panel draws a balanced picture of this crowd-sourced technique. “The community was the most interesting experience”, explains Beth Comstock (GE) in reference to a platform to collect and finance ideas about ways to innovate energy. Kohei Nishiyama (Elephant Design) presents Cuusoo, an online user community that collects wishes. He shows a LEGO kit that was completely designed by users. Marissa Mayer points out that Google has a policy of allowing their developers to spend 20% of their time on innovative projects. Being a very tech-driven company, Google also stays true to the agile models of software developers: Release early, release often. The assumption that the competition cannot reproduce your product is most likely not true, warns Jens Martin Skibsted (KiBiSi). In consequence, he suggests sharing should be more open as this accelerates innovation for everybody in the industry.

Starting off, Jeffrey presents some of his work including a project they created, where the scenario describes fiction as a way to talk about architectural reality today. His architecture office INABA specializes in an analytical approach to form making and building that can be realized with a high degree of design resolution. About the future challenges of cities, he points out that “the main problem with alternative technologies today is how to store them.” Geoffrey focuses on the question, if our cities are sustainable. He is certain that “unless we develop a serious, integrated, comprehensive, scientifically based, quantitative, predictive theory of citizen corporations, we will not make progress.” His research and application of different laws and

scales helps to understand the deep structure of cities. This is both important in order to forecast the future of urban areas and their dwellers as well as to better adjust them to the fast changes of today’s economy, environment and society. Picking up this thought, Bjarke raises the question, “how much of our quality of life are we prepared to sacrifice in order to become sustainable.” To him, it is a question of anticipating the problem, His work and projects aim to create a more competitive standpoint for sustainability and use it to

increase the quality of life. As architects “we design ecosystems that channel the flow of people and resources”, Bjarke defines his professional mission. In conclusion, urbanism is a highly relevant topic. Never before so many people have lived in urban areas. Today, the planet is more than half urbanized and by 2050, 80% of the planet will be urbanized. In the face of this development, the field of built environment has to be increasingly approached by both science and architecture to respond to the upcoming challenges.

aside the Silicon Valley meets entertainment  Well,bigputting “with deals, if you’re talking about big content deals,  

that’s not what I’m really talking about. I think to me the big issue that I’m focused on are these start-ups, and the   difference in culture between Silicon Valley and the world of entertainment. There are a lot of practical issues in it.   In Hollywood I remember since I was 17 or 18 I would always hear, ‘never put up your own money.’ It’s something they   put into your brain, never put up your own money. Top talent rarely is paying for their own albums; they are rarely putting money into their own films. In Silicon Valley, I think, that start-ups could really benefit from having entertainment helping them spread the message, yet there’s no connectivity there because start-ups are not making sponsorship deals. Which is all that my world understands: these traditional sponsorship deals. So, these start-ups are looking for, when they are doing angel investing, I believe that a lot of these start-ups could really use the push; if a start-up knows who their audience is, if they are going into the teen market, and they know that a Justin Bieber would give them a leg up maybe having him invest as an angel, there are sometimes twenty angels in a round, why not have a really great talent or even a brand, come into that round as an investor.   So the disconnect is that Hollywood doesn’t invest really and they’re not used to it, and Silicon Valley does not know   how to connect to that.

Spotlight Martin Zimmermann, Jennifer L. Schenker Tech expert Jennifer L. Schenker (Informilo) interviews Martin Zimmermann (Daimler AG) about the changing consumer behaviour of car users. Cars are seen and used in a different way today; “People do not see cars a status symbol anymore, but basically as an easy way to get from A to B – and that is what we have to take into account and organize”, he points out. In response to this, two creative ideas have been worked out at Daimler: car2go and car2gether.

1 Long in the business: Journalist Jennifer Schenker moderated the conversation 2 Car2go – a carsharing initiative that lets people book and ride cars with­out owning them

Car2go is a completely new type of mobility option. It’s a personal and flexible system that grants you the advantages of owning your own car minus the hassle and expense. The principle is simple: Whenever you need a car, you can book one of the 300 Smart vehicles staged in convenient locations all over the city. Car2gether on the other hand is a car sharing service that uses social platforms to communicate the service. People offer or search for shared rides. Both car-sharing models are used alongside existing public transportation and serve to substantially reduce the emissions and congestion in dense urban cores.

The system allows consumers to instantly verify with a free text message whether a drug is counterfeit or real. The consumer texts a non-duplicable code and in 2.5 seconds a response is sent to the mobile phone which informs the consumer whether it is safe or not. The most innovative about this process is the ability to align the incentive of various stakeholders, the pharmacists, regulators, drug manufacturers and telecom carriers. mPedigree partnered with HP and 30 other companies.

Life Deepak Chopra, Alexander Tsiaras, Juan Enriquez, David Agus, Lakshmi Pratury “Consciousness is the source of our life, the ground of our being,” explains Deepak Chopra. He started his presentation with a video about the development stages of an embryo. He focuses on the yet unexplained but huge role of the consciousness, not only for our complete perception of reality, but also for our health. Space, time, energy and information – everything that we call reality is a product of our consciousness. And we can change the structure of our brain: Total well-being is driven by career, finances, social well-being and physical well-being. “Your genes are not deterministic; you can turn your genes. Our body is not a structure but a process: 98% of the atoms reinvent themselves.” Deepak promises that within 4 months of meditation, sleeping well, exercise and healthy relationships, you can turn on your good genes. Alexander Tsiaras (TheVisualMD.com) points out that we can control our bodies by controlling our lifestyle. “Its not about the destination, it’s about the way.” He puts up nine rules of wellness, focussing on a balanced lifestyle concerning diet, stress, sleep, relationships and so on. His company stands for scientific visualization: the use of technologies enables us to look into the inside of our bodies. This way, people can actually see the damages to their organs and other effects of unhealthy living. The visualizations tell stories to the people and use the images to help pe­ople understand how their bodies work exactly. He illustrates this concept with various

2 Juan Enriquez explains in an illustrative way: For the first sixteen divisions, Pluripotent stem cells can be­come any single part of your body. It can be compared to, being at the top of a mountain and choosing where to ski down, and as soon as you start skiing the cells become neurons, muscles, bones or platelets and then further specialize into macrophages, or t-cells. However, last year Chinese scientists took skin cells from a mouse, and turned the skins cells into Pluripotent stem cells. They then gave birth to a mouse that was identical. Going back to the metaphor, basically the ski lift that takes stem cells, skin cells or bones cells right back up to the top of the mountain was invented. 3 The creation of the first lab-grown organ, an artificial urinary bladder by The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

examples such as smoking, unhealthy food or stress. Finally, he announces a health program that will be launched next year that allows people to reverse their bio-markers within a couple of months and make them physically younger. Juan Enriquez talks about the creation of life. We have had five cycles of extinction and new life forms up until now. He says we should not see us as the end of evolution – we have seen 24 different species of human beings, and our species has coexisted with six of them. So what might be next? We are already able to re-grow animal wings or bladders. Further on, he presents three different experiments. First, the creation of pluripotent stem cells out of the skin cells of a mouse to re-grow a whole mouse. Second, the infiltration of fluorescent fluid into the brain to track brain processes during specific movements. Two colors are used to produce a binary code that can be downloaded – which basically means you can download memories.

You create tools that can enforce transparency. So when you have these tools which are neutral, how can you guarantee that these tools are used in the right way? AK:

I think that it is very important that society is leading this course; that we all talk about why we need more transparency. What is acceptable to us as a society and what is not. This central question is something that we have to define in the future for our society to grow in a healthy manner. The only way to answer this question, if it can ever be answered, is if we make use of diverse organisations. We need a very diverse set of people who are leading this debate. We need to carry it into the heart of our society using people and organisation with experiences. DDB:

The Web has created a space in society and politics that has no presidency. There are no rules yet. So how are the ways you can come to a new set of rules that are also enforceable? AK:

I think the answer is providing a tool that is non-discriminatory to anyone who wants to use it; that is a neutral approach that you’ve taken. It’s important that the ones who provide the tool are not getting abused as a political instrument. If you provide a technology, it remains very powerful if it is neutral; if you do not use it for a specific purpose, but if you just open it up for everyone. That’s what we are trying to do with OpenLeaks. DDB:

When you look at social networks like Facebook, there is a lot of talk about transparency as well. But I think the word has various meanings. DDB: It is important to differentiate. What Facebook creates is a transparency of the individual. But for me there is no value addition in that. We are looking at a transparency that is immoral and has to be exposed. AK: What mistakes were made in the WikiLeaks phase? AK:

WikiLeaks is trying to do too many things at once. It has a lot of control over the material that is being submitted; and the moment you make decisions you become a political player. That is what we, at OpenLeaks, want to avoid and this is why we just want to provide the technology. We are not trying to be the answer for all the organisations in the world. We like to decentralize the whole topic. DDB:

So you become more of an idea and a concept than an organisation? AK:

We are just a mechanism to expose wrong-doings in the world. DDB:

You said you want to broaden the scope with OpenLeaks. Where will you broaden that scope to? AK:

We are aiming at a longterm and sustainable project and mechanism that will help the world in the future. DDB:

How do you deal with diplomacy? AK:

The Communications Difference Brandee Barker, Brooke Hammerling, Margit Wennmachers, Kara Swisher Life in the classic PR world has changed quickly in the last few years. Brandee Barker, Brooke Hammerling (Brew Media Relations), and Margit Wennmachers (Andreessen Horrowitz) share their insights as women in Tech PR with Kara Swisher. While in the beginning, marketing and PR did not matter for a company launch, nowadays it is vital from the get-go. Slowly companies understand and adapt to the fast change in the social media world. Although, “there was a lack of real understanding how things were changing”, Brooke points out. Nowadays, even CEOs are involved in the communication process and participate in the conversation on blogs. As a result of the fast development the communication landscape, journalists aren‘t as important as they used to be, and channels like Twitter or Facebook made everybody out there become a megaphone. More fundamental than the channel is the actual message. News and comments are made quickly and as they are transparent to everyone, the timing and tone has to be chosen carefully from companies, in order to avoid miscommunication. This goes up to the CEO level explains Brandee. “Mark Zuckerberg once wrote, that he likes Spotify and from that the rumor was born, that Facebook is interested in buying it.”

Moderator Matthew Bishop (Economist) provides an overview of the impact that social networking has online in a wide range of fields. As for campaigning, Chris Hughes (Jumo) points out that social media is mainly a communications channel rather than an inherently political tool. Particularly for NGOs, social networking offers great opportunities that go well beyond the “traditional” ways of contributing to an NGO (donations and direct engagement). In the dimension of activism,

Randi Zuckerberg explains, Facebook can provide a powerful platform to get the word out on an issue. In the political sphere, it is important to protect the user’s identity, particularly in times of crises. In Iran, Facebook didn’t save potentially data, instead they deleted as much and as quickly as they could where necessary to protect lives.

At DLD, he talks about the increasing importance of cities. The challenge we face is the question of energy supply. Stewart explains various forms of power plants in detail and their environmental properties. Next, Kevin Kelly rolls out his theory that networks of technologies form a superorganism, called “The Technium”. Technology follows the same general trends like evolution. To him, we have an obligation to increase the amount of technology in the world for enabling new generation of geniuses to express their talent. George Dyson describes the history of computing. In 1951, the first computer was completed. It was the first mo-

China Screens Jeffrey Chan, Wang Lifen, Joshua Cooper Ramo China is a country that is exposed to a lot of media attention – but in many parts it is different to what Europe and the US are used to. Jeffrey Chan of Bona International Film group says, the ways of consuming media can differ on many levels, but some movies become a cultural phenomenon and generate a different excitement in the society. Revenues and the growth rate of the film industry are rising unprecedentedly. It is expected that the Chinese market will increases from 2008 until 2012 by 35% yearly. According to Jeffrey, consumers prefer big blockbusters, but they also watch a large amount of romantic comedies. Wang Lifen of Umiwi Technology and former producer of China’s hit show WIN IN CHINA believes that not everything is adaptable in China and that the industry needs to do a lot of R&D to see what works for the mainstream in China. Production values have transformed very rapidly in China, but they still lag behind others. Yet, the

Peter Hirshberg, Ynon Kreiz, Brian Sullivan, Thomas Künstner What is the future of TV? Brian Sullivan (Sky Germany) reckons that we cannot even fathom what TV will look like in a few years, but there is huge potential in the ecosystem around it. If this ecosystem, with its existing relationships and the billions of US dollars spent each year, really blooms online as well as on broadcast, the sky is the limit, points out Ynon Kreiz (Endemol). Peter Hirshberg (Starling TV) remarks that the relationships between producers, broadcasters and consumers are changing. More concretely, a younger generation already has adapted to ways of consuming video that seem unfamiliar to traditional broadcasters – such as Hulu, Netflix and iTunes. One thing is clear, though: The world of TV is going to change significantly.

Social Arts Josette Melchor Participation in art has been important throughout the ages, states Josette Melchor, but only in the past years has the need for social interaction reached the web. Josette is the Executive Director of Gray Area Foundation For The Arts (GAFFTA), a San Francisco-based non-profit organization dedicated to “building social consciousness through digital culture.” She points out that the web is now being used more than ever as an expressive medium and “cultural and social interphase.” GAFFTA brings together creative coders that create data visualizations. During her presentation, Josette speaks about the difference the new GAFFTA building will have on the community. “The seven storefronts that we are going to be taking up were previously used as a porn arcade, a liquor store, and a bar. We are going to be changing these places into a media art center that is open to all of this community. And that is a statement.” By locating it in that particular community, GAFFTA has completely changed the community for the better. Lastly, Josette introduces the project Sequence on their website. It allows donators to create their own data visualizations.

Stained glass windows in the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Chartres. Stained glass windows are part of the great beauty of gothic cathedrals. The idea came from the notion that God is light (Deus lumen est) and that the walls of the church would therefore have to be delicate and translucent – diaphanous. The imaging medium is no longer the fresco or the wall; instead, owing to the concept of divine light, the stained glass windows become the pictures in which the Old and the New Testaments are portrayed.

The Dresden Castle – view of the jewelry chamber in the historic Green Vault. In the curiosity chamber, or wunderkammer, the wealthy rulers collected the complete scope of knowledge that was available in their day. The ruler was not just the master of laws and of war, but in the eras of Galileo Galilei, Kepler and, somewhat later, Newton, he was the driving force in discovering the world.

And then this (iPhone) is a new one, when you are sitting here you are all taking out your iPhones, its snowing outside by-theway, but you don’t look out of the window but watch the screens. With the Digital Wunderkammer, I wanted to look at the migration of the historical impact of our views, of how do we look at the world. This is looking out of the window.

The old gothic glass window (church) and the new gothic glass window (television). Every screen, every interface, has its own quality. Remember how they had to change storytelling from books to movie theatres? This is what Dyson showed us, the beginning of television in ’34 and this is multimedia. Every interface has its own quality. When the computer came we made a lot of mistakes by just taking the magazine aesthetics towards the new screen. The last example is the Wunderkammer itself. Martin Roth (who interviewed Corrine Hunt about Potlatch) is the director of the Dresden Wunderkammer. It is not a museum; it is a very fine example of where the king of Saxony made a collection of these incredible things which in those days were really cutting edge, the newest technology. We have Steward Brand here, and it was Steve Jobs who said, Stewards’ The Whole Earth Catalogue was the beginning of Google. The Wunderkammer later became the Museum of Natural Science, and from the Museum of Natural Science it went to the World Exhibition Fair in Paris and from there it went directly into the catalogue because you wanted to buy all the things you could see. This was in ’72 and ’74 and we were all very impressed. We were fans. This was times of The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles and California. This was a wonderful invention. If Hillis was here he would be quite astonished. On the right side you see The Long Now, the famous watch which is running for 10,000 years. On the left side you see another clock out of the Wunderkammer from 1680, and you can see this migration of images, its more or less always the same. I believe a new Wunderkammer is Google – where you type in your query and find everything. When I was finishing the book, the hype about a new Wunderkammer (Facebook) just started.

Solair Solar Stewart Brand, Olafur Eliasson, Bill Gross, Frederik Ottesen, Tino Sehgal, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Produced in association with the Institute of the 21st Century This panel addresses sustainability, solar technology, the arts, and explores the outlook of building a solar airplane for the 21st century. Together, this set-up combines visual arts, sustainable air travel, climate engineering and solar tech solutions in dialogue. The curator Hans Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Gallery) brings together this interdisciplinary conversation group including Stewart Brand (Long Now Foundation), Bill Gross (Idealab), Frederik Ottesen (Solar Flight), and the artists Olafur Eliasson and Tino Sehgal. Speaking about climate change and the future, Stewart does not believe that solar is going to be the answer to our energy crisis. To create enough energy would take tens of thousands of solar panels and mirrors. He analyzes that there are “Green on Green fights” between the people pushing for renewable energy and the environmentalists trying to protect the deserts from being

bulldozed and turned into fields of solar panels. Today, Stewart opts for nuclear power, urbanisation, and biotech. “Solar energy is a novelty, unless it can actually beat the price of fossil fuels with no government subsidies,” Bill opens with a provocatively statement. Still, there is a giant energy gap, and we have to make it up renewably. He urges that evolving technology will decrease costs. 1

The company eSolar, for instance, uses Moore’s law to drive down the price of solar energy. 3

Each solar mirror is computer controlled, with a 2 dollar micro-processor (which would have cost $5,000 in 1981) in every single mirror. This makes the plant more cost effective and productive. Frederik built a passenger carrying solar powered plane with Solar Flight. The Sunseeker II has logged more flight hours than any other solar aircraft. The plane itself is an autonomous, small flying power plant. He argues that building and flying a solar aircraft inspires a commitment to a sustainable future.

The session bridges the gap between cloud computing, architecture, climate engineering, visual art and philosophy. The increasing opportunities of cloud and mobile computing are one of the most discussed innovation topics of today. The cloud introduced something that has no place in air travel but at the same time is air travel. The inter­ disciplinary set-up of panellists provided very heterogeneous interpretations and opinions on the impact of clouds.

Smells have the ability to bring back memories or emotions. “Humans can sense up to 10,000 different types of odours.” Accordingly, he believes that having a bad smell is one of the worst things that can happen to a human being. Through research, he argues that smells are an extension of our sexual organs. Wrapping up, he urges the audience to smell like yourself and

“ 90% of the children learn and get their education from outside the classroom. ” Asha Jadeja | Dot Edu Ventures

Social Innovation Karen Tal, Asha Jadeja, Claudia Gonzalez, Gabriele Zedlmayer This session focuses on the interface of social change, inclusion and digital communication. The four panellists have found new powerful ways to accelerate societal improvement. Karen Tal is the principle of Avney Rosha, a school in Israel for Jewish, Christian, and Muslim children from 48 countries with complicated backgrounds, such as refugees or children from single families. The school serves as a family substitute in a way. A movie about her school in Tel Aviv just won the “Best Documentary Short Subject” Oscar 2011. Gabi Zedlmayer (HP) shows how her company helps in the areas of education, life and health. One of many projects they support is the Mothers2Mothers program in South Africa that helps to get information about the prevention of Mother-to-Child-transmission of HIV to pregnant women. The Global Fund is a financial institution that redistributes the money of nation states, explains Claudia Gonzalez. It focuses on the fight against HIV, malaria and tuberculosis. One of their main goals is to eliminate the mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015. When Asha Jadeja (Dot Edu Ventures) realised that her daughter is able to study much better outside of the classroom where attendance was voluntary, she now is trying to set up a free platform for online learning.

Badoo goes a different way. Their service works outside of FB. Nevertheless, they have experienced a high growth rate after launching services on FB as well. Interestingly, the three companies have very different approaches to monetization. While Badoo focuses on a freemium model, BranchOut will enable monetization models in the future. FamilyBuilder runs on advertising and will activate subscription based models – as soon FB sets the framework.

“ Scale is the strategic asset in India. ” Sanjay Parthasarathy | Entrepreneur

Digital India Kunal Bahl, Vishal Gondal, Sanjay Parthasarathy, Naveen Tewary, Harish Bahl Five entrepreneurs share their experiences of building companies in India: Vishal Gondal (Indiagames), Naveen Tewari (InMobi), Sanjay Parthasarathy (Entrepreneur), Kunal Bahl (SnapDeal.com), and the moderator Harish Bahl (Smile Group). Common ground is that India offers both growing opportunities, and cultural challenges. India’s mobile network is growing at an exceeding rate. The panellists all believe any new digital companies in India should focus on mobile. While the digital infrastructure is far from being perfect, the rapidly growing user base is huge. Still, one challenge in India is the small business owner who hasn’t used the Internet before. This person wants you to sit down with him for two hours five times before doing business with you. This offline sales process is a cultural aspect that anyone who wants to do business in India needs to be familiar with. In conclusion, India is just about to take off as a massive digital market and it‘s becoming more than a place to operate out of: a place to actually operate in, and to do business with.

and debate the state of the financial world. Taking off, the panel begins with one of the most discussed topics: regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the US. What should the government be doing? Should it be protecting the investors from “being stupid”? Or should it just be in place to make sure that the consumer is informed? Lastly, in a market that is so focused on quarterly results and has so much regulation, is it really not lucrative to make an IPO for companies? David thinks that it’s very important that companies take this step, although he acknowledges some of the challenges of the current market. At the same time, he recognizes that there aren’t as many companies that are going to survive the IPO, many of those who will attempt this step will end up being acquired. Henry asks if the way Facebook raises money is maybe how other companies should act, too. “What most people don’t recognize is that the IPO has been dying a slow death for the past 10 years and no one is really talking about it,” responds Barry. He is not optimistic for the future of IPO’s and instead believes that the future lies in private trading on secondary markets. This way, he says, “people can get access to these really exciting companies, the fastest growing companies in the world, and not have to wait for an IPO. I think this is game

changing.” On the other hand, David disagrees, because this model – while being very interesting – is not scalable to other companies. Overall, the IPO market had experienced a dip in the last few years. Still, David is very optimistic about the future of the IPO market, because there is a sufficient amount of companies who are talking with banks to prepare for a potential IPO. In conclusion, this controversial debate shows that the economy is definitely recovering and is heading in the right direction.

Trip Adler | Scribd

Content Strategies Trip Adler, Marco Arment, Sam Mandel, Patrick Wölke, Jochen Wegner Scribd, Instapaper, TweetDeck, and the Burda Media iLab: this session brings together represen­ tatives of four cutting-edge publishing tools that represent the changing media landscape. Providing content for a wide range of devices requires a well-thought out strategy. Both, content and distribution need to be adapted to various platforms and user behaviours. Jochen Wegner stresses that this entails a certain kind of “database journalism” that allows pushing content out to all different platforms. However, the new ways of user engagement offer publishers new opportunities: “We see social media driving traffic”, says Trip Adler. “It’s about creating the right kind of atmosphere around social content.” The willingness of users to pay for digital content is discussed controversially. Trip does not believe users would pay for digital content unless they had an excellent user experience, Patrick Wölke shares insights into their research: “The closer the experience is to what people are used to from magazines, the more likely the consumers are willing to pay.” Contrary to criticism, services like Instapaper don’t hurt the online presences of traditional media, but instead drive demand for reading longer texts through their tool. “I’ve taken the outrageous and highly questionable approach of charging money for a service”, says founder Marco Arment. In conclusion, it is possible to earn money with digital content. It might not be in the traditional 3

way, however it is through innovation. Nevertheless, Sam Mandel is certain about one formula for success in the near future: “It is important to be present in the stream.”

I met the people who work at The Daily. Its 126 people on the journalistic side who work on The Daily. And you are going to sell that app for 99 U.S. cents. How are you going to make money by this? Isn’t this just how Burda put it last year, lousy pennies? KD:

Look, I think it’s a really good price. Being 99 cents a week it’s very affordable for customers and I think it’s really going to enable a lot of people to experiment with this new platform. There are very few barriers for people to have access, and to enjoy what we think is going to be a very high quality offering. I think pricing models for apps, and for paid journalism in general, are developing and we are going to see how that goes; whether or not we are going to bundle it with things, whether or not we see new packages for premium access. But our core pro­ position here is to be super simple, to be as accessible as possible, to be great value for customers, and to ensure we keep investing in really unique, quality journalism. That it is written by real journalists who are out there in the field, producing quality content across text, photography, audio and video, as opposed to just taking RSS feeds or cutting and pasting wires - which we think has homogenized a huge amount of digital publications already – we think it’s a really exciting product that uses the best in new technology to push the boundaries of reporting.

And we have an exciting mix of businesses; we are in the business of ideas and story­telling – from our journalism businesses across the United States, Australia and the UK all the way to our film and TV businesses, each which can be credited with great successes and great risktaking. It is this breadth and creative risk taking that we find really exhilarating and in today’s all-digital marketplace we really believe it’s an incredible time to be in the media business, with all the excitement and challenges it brings.

What is the strategic goal of the app? When do you think it’s a success? 1 How many applications do you have to sell? KD:

This is a big debate for us. Whenever we hit a milestone, we’re always seeking to get to the next one. We of course want to see customers responding well to our apps but, the industry is still working a lot out; like the pace of it and the dynamics around how customers will engage with weekly subscription models, which are very different animals to annual subscriptions like we have in digital television. So we just have to see how these develop, but we have high hopes for the U.S. marketplace. And our app development is accelerating around the world. For instance, in Australia, our new app for The Australian is a big national product there and our apps at the The Times and The Sunday Times in the U.K. continue to do well. This is something that our editors are really focused on and creatively it has really galvanized a significant number in the journalistic community. JM:

Grand Final Eric Schmidt

I would like “to What do is talk about

the next decade and how technology in the world that we live in will change.

Personally, I am very excited about my next decade at Google. I think it’s even going to be better than the last decade. Everything is chang­ing again and I’ve absolutely become con­vinced that we’re getting to the point where technology is finally going to actually serve us. In my whole career I’ve felt like I was serving the technology and it was always me who had to ‘fix the computer’. I think that finally now we’re going to get to the point where the technology does what we want. So let me suggest a happiness theorem, that computers will finally make it be possible for us to do the things that we actually want to do. So to be with other people, people you love, people you care about, people you enjoy; to find happiness in general and to make the world a better place. There are lots of examples; there’s a company called Ushahidi which is crowdsourcing information around the globe. They started off in Kenya basically around disasters, but the prin­ ciple, the underlying architecture of using crowd sourced information is incredibly powerful. People know what’s going on in their environment and we can finally collect that information and use it to figure out what’s really going on as opposed to what people think is going on. There are lots and lots of examples – Haiti, Russia, clean ups in New York and snow in Boston. Another example has to do with the use of telemetry in medicine. There are projects how to take essentially real time monitoring and put it on mobile phones. It’s obviously better to have your phone monitor your vital signs if you’re an ill person, or even if you’re a person worried about some medical thing than anything else, because your phone is always on and always with you. This is a material change and it has a huge impact on the cost structure of medicine and the quality of care. It’s interesting that a developer created glasses for Android where you basically put them on and it translates what you see in the Android camera in to the way that people who are colour blind see colour. Looking through the camera they can see colour that they could not before. I didn’t even think this was possible! This is accelerating faster and faster, fundamentally because the
