Liebesengel (‘Angels of Love’, see earlier post & download here) is a track by my 7-year old daughter and myself. It was featured on today’s episode of Quiet Space (Webpage – Audiostream), a nightly radio show on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Radio National.
Beyond ‘ambient’, the music of the Quiet Space incorporates 20th century composition, blissful pop and ethereal drones. It is music to reflect and relax to – a soundscape to in which to lose yourself.
Here we go! Storyboard ready, slideshow ready, moderation ready, checked-in for my flight. Can’t wait to see you all at #RP12: My colleagues and session guests (see below), Andreas Schepers & many other friends, mates & colleagues such as FC Stoffel, Mo. Sauer, Sim Sullen, Katti and lots of other people I’ve been communicating frequently with over social networks in past years, but whom I actually haven’t met yet in person … hope two days will be enough & see you soon!
On 2 May 2012, I will take part in a session at re:publica Berlin on behalf of DLR. re:publica is Germany’s largest and most prominent conference on the future of society and all things digital.
During the 60 Minute session, we will discuss why space agencies and their astronauts blog and tweet (sometimes even from Space), how it all works and why the intense use of social media has become an important part of the respective communication strategies.
What started off as a ‘class reunion’ of bloggers, researchers and internet activists, now regularly attracts over 3000 participants: As a result of last year’s full house at ‘Friedrichstadtpalast’, this year’s re:publica will bring participants together at Station Berlin. Even so, the conference has preserved an open and familiar atmosphere. “A quality conference with a festival feel”, in the words of the organisers.
P.S.: I forget to mention that our session will take place in the evening of 2 May 2012, 19.00 to 20.00 CEST. and that, according to re:publica, these late events can be accessed by the general public for a fee of just a few euros. Currently, re:publica organisers are checking whether these late events can be made accessible for the general public at small fee. Full conference tickets (3 days, over 200 hours of programme) are available here for 130 Euro.
