Web Monday is an informal gathering (in and around Germany) aimed at bringing together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, researchers, web pioneers, inventors, bloggers, podcasters, end users and other folks interested in web 2.0 (in the broadest sense). The goal is to better connect the German web 2.0 scene as well as improve transatlantic idea exchange between Germany and the US (and – hopefully – help bring some of those good Silicon Valley vibes to Germany).

Since its inception in November 2005, Web Monday has spread fast: meetings are now being held in 10+ cities all across Germany on a regular basis (among them 7 of the nation's top 10 biggest) and have attracted several hundred repeat participants so far. Meetings have also been held in Vienna (Austria) as well as on Second Life.

Anyone involved in web 2.0 or neighboring fields who has an interest in German-US business (or any kind of "bridging" between the two, for that matter) is most welcome to join. Whether you are from Germany and live and work here in Silicon Valley (and want to help spread the love), or whether you are from Silicon Valley and have ties to Germany – Web Monday Silicon Valley is your chance to present your product, your service, your startup, your cool new project or your next big idea to a growing audience of German web aficionados.

Please make sure to sign up on the wiki as well in case you plan to attend. Thank you!

There should be pizza/snacks and drinks (we may ask for a small contribution from those who can afford it). ;-)

We especially welcome our fellow Europeans. Come on over! There's plenty we can learn from each other.

Following the pattern it should have been October! I know you are not around then. :) Still. First you had to put the August one out of my reach and now the second one also! :) :)


Sorry. We're so experimental still, we can't even get the intervals right (call that creative tumbling, if you will). ;-)


Looks like there's a chance we may have Lukasz from Spreadshirt. Watch the wiki for updates.


Looks like someone from Qype will give a live presentation from Germany via the web.


We are still looking for a location in or around Palo Alto ,CA (my bad, running a little late, I know). Hopefully, it can be announced over the weekend or early next week. Ping me if you have any suggestions. Thanks!


We have a venue! I am pleased to announce that the friendly people over at Cooley Godward Kronish LLP in Palo Alto have offered to host this event (they will also sponsor the drinks -- whoo hoo!). So now that that's been settled: spread the word, bring your friends, and join us on Monday, November 6.


We had to postpone our Qype presentation. We will have Dawanda instead (a pre-launch social commerce startup from Cologne, Germany). See you all tonight!
