Davos World Economic Forum

I’m attending and covering two great conferences this week. First up is the Digital, Life, Design event in Munich (where i have just arrived). There are a few interesting panels and discussions, and I’ll mention any highlights over the next two days.

Then on Tuesday I’ll join three thousand other lucky individuals who are attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. It is an honor to be able to attend, and many of the sessions are bloggable (some are off record). I’ll also be one of the “challengers” at the Pioneers and Pitches session on Saturday, and will cover that as well. Any free time during the week will be spent trying to convince Larry, Sergey and Marissa from Google that they should let me on the Google jet back to the bay area (wish me luck).

The Davos Conversation

The deadline for the Davos Conversation is tomorrow, January 21. The program is a way to get a conversation going between Davos participants and the wider community, and you can join the discussion.

To participate, create a video that answers the question “What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?” and upload it to the Davos Conversation YouTube site.
