Eight years ago, a small team around Wolf Groß established the Münchner Webwoche – at the time it was also called Isarnetz. Since then, it took place every year and will now be held for the 7th time!

And in those seven years, it changed and improved quite a bit. I helped a little when it was initiated and accompanied it over the years as advisory board member. Sometimes I invested more time and energy, sometimes less. It grew to be a great event.

Professor Wolf Groß is the initiator and driving force of the Second Munich Digital Dialogue. Consequently, for him, the purpose of the Webwoche is:

“The data scandal around facebook and Cambridge Analytica, along with the onslaught of hate posts and conspiracy theories in social networks, shows that it cannot just be about promoting digital transformation. We also have to develop rules for controlling the digital future.“

Incidentally, Professor Wolf Groß is not related to my partner “Wolf“ Wolfgang Gross. We are talking two different persons who also write their names differently.

Here is a citation from the Münchner Webwoche website:
The Münchner Webwoche is the one inspiring digital event in Munich and was initiated by the association Isarnetz. During the event, Munich enterprises and organizations meet because they want to actively shape the digital change. They organize events around the topics technology and digitalization, promote  networking events, sponsor hackathons, Barcamps, podium discussions, workshops and seminars. They also show what digital and creative potential lies in the metropolitan region of Munich.

The 7th Münchner Webwoche is from 19th to 28th of April.

Perhaps we will see each other there during one of the events? It would be a true pleasure for me to see you!

P.S.
There is no deadline for also participating with your own event. After all, everything is digital. 🙂
