In some ways, Webstock is more like a Web 2.0 festival than a startup conference. They call it an “unconference” because it’s not like a traditional conference where only certain people are allowed to speak). A real startup conference is Netcamp, which I will cover in another article.
Webstock started earlier this year with the selection of Web 2.0 projects (already launched, betas, private betas – all at least one month old) which will be presented in the final gala. The project needs to have at least one Web 2.0 component (they used the Wikipedia definition) and it needs to be created by Romanian companies or Romanian citizens (Romanian-foreign partnerships are accepted too).
The selection is made by media journalists and online specialists, and the projects are categorized as follows:
* Publishing (including Photography)
* Social Networking
* User Generated Content
* Video & Audio
* Company & Brand Blogs
* Blogging Campaigns
* Digital Storage
* Content Aggregation
