Behold! The Drumbeat event in Bulgaria.

The first ever Drumbeat event in Bulgaria will be held during the prestigious P2P Conference in April.

I will try to talk about “What is Web” in front of students, artists, politicians, IT professionals, teachers and business owners.

The main idea is to clarify what Web means to all groups present. Is it the space where you publish some files for your clients or is something more. Is it all about sharing or it is some place to meet new friends?

After the speech we will make a large group workshop for creating idea how to make the web better. The group with the best idea will receive a prize – a journey, immediate after the workshop.

I am organizing this event since 2004. This years speakers will be Michael Widenius, Patrick Finch, Robert Nyman, Jeremmie Zimmermann, me and other good guys and girls.
