What is Web Monday and why should I care?

Web Monday is an informal gathering (in and around Germany) aimed at bringing together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, researchers, web pioneers, inventors, bloggers, podcasters, end users and other folks interested in web 2.0 (in the broadest sense). The goal is to better connect the German web innovator scene as well as improve transatlantic idea exchange between Germany and the US (and – hopefully – help bring some of those good Silicon Valley vibes to Germany).

Since its inception in November 2005, Web Monday has spread fast: meetings are now being held in 20+ cities all across Germany on a regular basis and have attracted several hundred repeat participants so far. Meetings have also been held in Vienna (Austria) and Innsbruck (Austria) as well as on Second Life.

Very broadly put, Web Monday is about the future of the internet (especially insofar as it may be invented in Germany). Anyone involved in web 2.0 or neighboring fields who has an interest in German-US business (or any kind of “bridging” between the two, for that matter) is most welcome to join. Whether you are from Germany and live and work in the Bay Area (and want to help spread the good vibes), or whether you're from here and would like to connect with folks from overseas – Web Monday Silicon Valley is your chance to present your product, your service, your startup, or your next big idea to a growing audience of German web aficionados (some local, some watching via the web). Plus, there's food and drinks.

To Do

Things to take care of beforehand.

This may or may not include the following:

  • Designated time-keeper (anyone want to volunteer?)
  • Name tags
  • Wi-fi
  • Audio recording (podcast)
  • Video recording
  • Live video streaming
  • Projector
  • Snacks/Pizza
  • Refreshments (beer, wine, water, softdrinks etc.)


Good? Bad? Suggestions? Ideas?
