Submission + - Decentralised social web movement meets in Berlin

moonbender writes: "W3C and PrimeLife, a EU research project on privacy issues, join forces with Diaspora and others to start developing standards for a federated social web during a conference in Berlin next month. There will be a keynote by Egyptian blogger-dissident Amr Garbheia, presentations, workshops and a hackathon to start implementing stuff to prepare a post-Facebook web. Friday evening will see a round table with people from the European pirate party, Google, Diaspora and London's Imperial Business School... That should make for some butting of heads. The call for papers ends next monday — but the open spaces stay open.
