Post Google Zeitgeist

It has been a great summer. After a great spring. After a few good years, as I wrote about a few months ago.

Upon return to the city life, I learnt that Google now have published the interviews and performances from Zeitgeist 2011, the one of its kind conference at the Grove in London, where I have been fortunate enough to have been invited over the past 3 years.

Below I wanted to point at some of the pieces that I enjoyed the most.

No 1: Google dare to bring up the difficult questions, putting together a panel with former extremists. Given recent developments this is an important discussion and was one of the real drop-of-a-needle-moments of the conference.

No 2: Jonathan Zittrain was back and I just love to listen to him both just purely as a speaker, but also from what he actually says:

No3: It was naturally also amazing to experience Stephen Hawking from front row:

As some of you might followed from @siwers, I also bambused the full speech here:

...but to be frank, the highlight version is good enough.

No 4: A star performance also came from Wahel Ghonim, the man behind the "Social media revolution" in Egypt. Impressive character, I suspect we will see big things coming out of this guy in the coming 20 years.

No 5: The CEO of Burberry, Angela Ahrendts, really live her brand. In this interview she speaks about a new world of non linear branding.

I was also myself captured on camera talking about the importance of being hungry, curios and not sleeping :-)

Or if you don't have the time, just watch the highlight video:

Thank you Google for an amazing - and important - experience.
