Blogging Davos

The World Economic Forum now has a blog.

Let the WEF know what you think of it by engaging it in the blogosphere.

I'll be one of several Davos bloggers, plus some other blogger/journalist hybrids like me, some people from the tech community, and at least one celebrity (stay tuned for who). This is the first year that the World Econ Forum will have a blog for its annual meeting. It’s an experiment in greater openness, and an effort by the WEF to have a more direct conversation with the world at large. Please visit often, link to it, comment, and let us know in the comments if you agree with what people are saying, disagree, have questions, or think it’s total bunk. I'll push as hard as I can to get people there to be responsive… though it's all one big experiment, and some Davosians are not surprisingly a little nervous.

Also note that quite a lot of sessions will be webcast this year. Webcast information is here, though the times have not yet been posted. Also check out the full Davos program, plus more detailed information about the Open Forum sessions – sessions you can just show up for without a Davos invitation, if you can get yourself there…

Turns out there’s already a Davos del.icio.us tag for articles and blog posts on the Davos meeting. Please feel free to tag anything you see being written about the Davos goings-on that you’d like everybody else in cyberspace to know about, positive and negative. There will of course be a Technorati tag as well.
