We are getting close to DNA2008, our VJ oriented, digital news conference in Brussels, Belgium.
The dates are March 3-4.
We’ve got lots of great speakers booked – more than 60, in fact.
Here are a few:
- Margot Wallström, Vice President, European Commission
- Helen Boaden, Director of News, BBC News
- Christian Van Thillo, CEO, De Persgroep

- Charles de Vroede, Deputy Chief Editor, De Telegraaf
- Willi Ruetten, Director, European Journalism Center

Of course, a lot of these are Europeans.
For Americans, (who tend to be a rather insular lot), some of these and the other names might seem strange.
Not in Europe.
And there is a lot to learn from them.
Europeans tend to be much further ahead on digital matters than Americans – though we don’t know this for the most part (because only 7% of us even have passports!).
In any event, take a look at the website…
And if you can, come over to Brussels.
Airfare is around $550.
Well worth it.
