Einladung zum e-G8 Forum


Gerade war ich noch in Sachen Spreadly auf dem European Venture Market in Berlin zu Gast, schon taucht die nächste Überraschung in meinem Postfach auf.

Folgendes war da zu lesen:


[box type=“note“ style=“rounded“]Dear Marco Ripanti,


A the initiative of Monsieur Nicolas Sarkozy, President of the French Republic and the current President of the G8, the Heads of State and Governement of the Group of Eight – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States – have decided to place the Internet and the digital ecosystem on the agenda of next month’s G8 Summit. This will mark the very first time that information technology formally takes a place on the agenda of a summit of heads of state – a recognition of how critically important these sectors are to sustaining and accelerating global economic growth.


In order to provide G8 political leaders with fresh ideas, President Sarkozy has asked me to coordinate the organization of the e-G8 Forum to take place in Paris on May 24 and 25. This will be a unique gathering of the world’s top Internet and digital leaders, not only from across the G8 nations, but further afield. Through our debates and discussions at the e-G8, we can and we must bring our reflections, ideas and experiences directly to the G8 leaders.


As the e-G8 Forum’s Chairman, I am therefore honoured to invite you to come to Paris to take part in this historic event. I believe it is vitally important that your voice be heard during the Forum. Only a true diversity of opinion can guarantee a good outcome.


Discussions at the two-day Forum will be a mixture of plenary sessions and in-depth workshops where a wide variety of themes will be addressed, including:


– The Internet as key driver for economic growth

– The emergence of global digital citizenship

– The digital technologies of the future

– How best to promote innovation clusters

– The mobile revolution and its impact on commerce, media and advertising

– Privacy and IP protection


President Nicolas Sarkozy will himself deliver the opening keynote address at 10:00 a.m. on May 24.


Wer wäre jetzt nicht auch ein wenig stolz zu so einem Event eingeladen zu werden?

ich freue mich drauf und bin gespannt wer noch da sein wird.
