Tomorrow Open Images will attend Walled Garden, a two-day conference in Amsterdam. From their website:
This international working conference will approach the development and future challenges of the current Web 2.0 through exploration, experimentation and exchange of knowledge. Our goal: a blueprint for policy makers, funders and practitioners that works towards a public garden.
Walled Garden will address issues of identity, mobile communities and networks by focussing on the tendency towards online gated and closed communities. How does this affect the accessibility of information and knowledge?
Now is the time to identify success factors and failures of Web 2.0 and to imagine and initiate new tools and strategies for the future Web. Our Walled Garden will be explored through conversations in form of structured group dialogue, open plenary sessions, discussions and face-to-face meetings with artists, researchers, theorists and technologists.
