Hosting Open! 2016 Blockchain panel

Transparent geblockt

Just found these pictures from hosting a panel on Blockchain at the Open Source Business Alliance’s 2016 Open IT! Konferenz,  moderating the OSBAR Award ceremony and the corresponding article on blockchain in enterprise (written for the OSBA/MFG) called “transparently blocked”, unfortunately only available in German: Transparent geblockt :

Am 7. Dezember [2016] treffen sich Experten aus Industrie, Wissenschaft und IT, um bei der OPEN! 2016 zu (er)klären, ob die Blockchain Hype oder ein echter Game-Changer ist, welche Rolle Verschlüsselung und Peer-to-Peer-Netzwerke dabei spielen und warum immer mehr Branchen der Meinung sind, die Kette aus verschlüsselten Informations-Blöcken lasse sich für neue und alte Geschäftsmodelle gewinnbringend einsetzen.

More Pictures from the conference can be found here.

OPEN! 2015 – Hosting the Panel “Open Source”

In 2015 Markus was permitted to moderate the panel “Open Source” at the OSBA and MFG’s Open! 2015. I was happy to welcome Malte Spitz and other prominent experts. Well, here’s my report (sorry, German only!). Interesting fact: We were among the first to demand “Public money, public code!”, and I love Malte Spitz’s quotes: “There’s no provable security without open source.” “Data protection is like the environmental protection of the future.”

Visiting the LPI board of directors

 

Getting up Saturday morning at 5 o’clock isn’t funny, but sometimes it’s worth it.
Today I traveled 400 miles across the country to meet with the board of the Linux Professional Institute, Central Europe Master Affiliate. Those four guys have been running the board throughout the last years… (from left to right) Dimitrios Bogiatzoules, Chairman Klaus Behrla, Oliver Michel and second chairman Reiner Brandt.
