After what feels like hundreds of IPTV shows - well probably it was only dozens - I feel an urge to replenish my intellect with some really new Ideas.
I was whining to Arian Koster, a friend from KPN, about how commercial all the shows have become as IPTV is now mainstream. He told me of an academic show where speakers still have to compete on merit rather than budget. So unless there's a strong reason that stops me, I intend to go to the show he recommended after he went last year. It's here: http://www.euroitv2010.org/. Maybe I'm naive, but I feel reassured that you still can't register. The organizers seem focussed on the content of the show for now.
Please drop me a line if you have any feedback from the show.
