German Museum of Technology in Berlin

I am currently taking part at the Wissen und Macht symposium in Berlin. While presenting some fact about my university and about the Blog-Intelligence project, I can listen to diverse talks about the power and oppurtunities of the web.
Hereby the main interest is in improving the quality and distribution of knowledge. The message is that universities and online communities shall interact more to build a trustful knowledge base.
One contra point mentioned is that this will make the web more inklusive, so normal people like you and me without an reputation will get problems.

The important point discussed now is the influence through social media and especially through the blogosphere. For example a journalist presents the Egyptian Blogger phenomen.
