… celebrating their 10th birthday with David Weinberger, Doc Searls, John Barlow, Yochai Benkler, Dan Gillmor, Jonathan Zittrain, Ethan Zuckermann… is just a natural thing here! They are speakers and participants, they are here ready to talk to anybody, answering questions, making suggestions … it is just wonderful!

What crowd of outstanding people!

Ethan Zuckerman, whom I just had for an interview, describes the Center as follows: “Berkman is a remarkable institution – it’s a think tank for folks who effect change as well as study phenomena. A number of my favorite people in the world of technology and international development hang their hats there and, as a result, it’s a great place to explore activist and research ideas.”

Why don’t we have institutions like this in Germany?
