SES Berlin
In two weeks time SES will open its doors for the first time in Berlin. After Hamburg last year they moved to Berlin. SES organizer Matt McGowan joins the show to discuss SES Berlin and more from SES.



3rd part:

New EU Telecom rules might affect search
The European Union last week agreed on new rules that should reform the Telecom business in 2010. The new rules amongst others mean stronger consumer rights, an open internet, a single European telecoms market and high-speed internet connections for all citizens. This can affect many in Europe when it comes to Telecom, but it can also have its impact on search and social media. And not just for us Europeans, Americans can be 'affected' to.

Press release

Papers getting more protective
It's a discussion which is going on for a while now. Newspapers are trying to find ways to monetize their content. That results in protection of data. Rupert Murdoch wants to keep Google out using the robots.txt and in Germany shuts out their iphone visitors.
