Secretary General Kofi Annan gave me 15 minutes later on today to take a few questions on Seesmic. I won’t be able to ask him all of them but as many as I can thank you so much for your questions, please just reply on the thread below.
This year I will be moderating a dinner session, which is my favorite, a small but great group of leaders from around the world and all types of background (religious, entrepreneurs, large corporations, non profits, academics, etc) get together around a topic, after a few introduction words each table discusses the topic then a rapporteur speaks for the table so that the room gets to learn what each table came up with. It is very intimate and interactive as well as very “many to many” as everybody can express itself. Here is the session below, would love your help to prepare it and will likely quote all your comments or video replies in my introduction, giving you attribution. Thanks in advance.
“What was Privacy ?”
Geographic location, relationship status, personal interests and professional background are no longer private once we step into the digital world. What does the end of privacy mean for individuals, corporations and governments?
Please help me or comment as well in video you can just hit the reply button as you play the above video
The session that I will moderate will include as discussion Leaders the following speakers that I know some of them will also probably join us preparing the session here on this blog post:

I would love your comments as well as any link to a good resource to prepare the session and will keep updating this note until the session at the end of January. Thanks in advance!
Resources that I am also gathering on my delicious tag privacy:
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.
The next World Economic Forum Annual Meeting will take place in Davos at the end of the month. I am honored to participate this year again for the fifth year (at the beginning as a Young Global Leader and this year again as a blogger). Klaus Schwab, the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum has given me a few minutes of his precious time to guide us through the Forum headquarters in Geneva and introduce this year’s theme.
Klaus Schwab is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. I had the pleasure to share a few minutes with Klaus and talk about the highlights of this year’s Annual Meeting as well as how Klaus views blogging and podcasting in Davos. Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum achievements are recognised with an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II and he is awarded a ‘Knight Commander of Most Noble Order of St. Michael and St. George’ by Jack Straw, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom. Thank you for letting the blogging happen this year again during the Annual Meeting !
