Blogging Live from Berlin - Any Requests?

Just wanted to let you all know that amongst the distinguished, distinguishable and disturbing people at the INET conference we have inserted ourselves in the middle to do some interviews, attend talks and blog about what is going on. So far, I've managed to have a Curry-wurst, get a room and see George Soros invest twenty five million dollars in a new research collaboration, and just about getting ready to go and be part of the Young Scholar Initiative's 'Commons' event, which is running as part of the conference.

So it looks like it will be busy, and myself, Floris and Till will try and keep you updated on what we see and hear. Requests for whom or what to interrogate, trip up or participate in welcome.



It would be interesting to read more about the two YSI Commons Panels "The Possibility of New Economic Thinking" as they do not seem to be streamed.


Hi Malte... Sorry for failing singularly to provide some commentary on that, mainly because I wasn't there for it. I was there for a couple of the sit-down sessions, which was basically one or more speakers sitting down and being thrown questions to think about. They were very cool !
