The World Economic Forum blog was launched in 2004 to follow the World Economic Forum regional events and the Annual Meeting in Davos, I have launched it and been contributing to it with the World Economic Forum team and other participants. It will be my sixth Davos this year. It has been a unique experience but never enough forces as a blogger with the team (thanks Michel, Samantha, Matthias, Mark and Nina ! Thanks for trusting me for so long !) to cover such an amazing and unique world leaders gathering. I also podcasted in audio tens of participants such as Richard Branson, George Soros and Sergey Brin last year. It gets more blogged every year and 2007 will be unique.
This year the World Economic Forum had a fantastic initiative, the creation of the Davos Conversation page (goes live on January 22). Blogs, videos, photos, news articles and reader comments related to Davos will all be on one page. There will also be a video bridge that will allow anyone to submit a video question to a Davos participant.
While I will blog and video blog on the Forum blog with the World Economic Forum team and other participants, Arianna Huffington and Roy Sekoff, HeffPost’s editor, BBC News, The Guardian and Jeff Jarvis will cover as many sessions and side events as possible.
In three years, I have seen every year more and more journalists also blogging the Annual Meeting, I know there will be even more this year and many will also post videos. With the Huffington post, Buzzmachine, BBC News, The Guardian, the Forum blog and all the journalists and participants blogs, this year’s Annual Meeting will be the most blogged ever, allowing anybody to take part in the conversation.
Looking forward to meet you all in Davos or on the web during the Annual Meeting through comments and blogs.
