Webmontag Hannover

April 20, 2009 at 11:29 pm 1 comment

In a dark, old-style sports-club-room I visited one of these “webmontags”   . The first Twitterwall I have seen and the most silent microphone I have heard so far ;).

The last presentation was the best one, but rather because of the energy and the presentation skills of Robert Basic (famous, because he was the first one who sold his Blog for about 50.000 Euros on Ebay). But the idea of his city portal buzzriders was quite simple: a local media plattform run partly by “Housewifes — because they have the time and the network” (I am unsure whether this was totally ironic). Lots of videos are planned to be embedded, the development will be totally open. Financing is via advertisements or people who search for something useful when new in town, use the buzzrider search engine then, and are provided by “paid” results mediated by buzzriders.

There was some studivz bashing going on (“marketingscheiss”) as a reply to a guy who said that they are successful due to marketing (studivz is not because they have a loss of 10 mio. Euro). “It’s the product!”, “No long term plans”, “for the common people, Basic stressed.

Good luck  for this idea. From my point, I would miss professional journalist’s local news, but what’s the alternative when newspapers get rid of local journalism?

About jannesr.wordpress.com Blog

This Blog has no real mission, but it is just a place for me to publish stories.
I like to have the pressure to simply write something down for an abstract audience. Bristrouble.wordpress.com was another attempt of me to do this when I was in Bristol. See below.
