A soft spot for big beasts

Susanne Hillmann (Schoser) is editor at the German public broadcaster ZDF. Her speciality are animal and nature programmes.

Recently, Susanne has edited several TV series on animal life in zoos. She has presented the whistling Orang-Utan of the Heidelberg zoo, the only European howler monkies in Cologne and the removal of ice bear Flocke from the Nuremberg zoo to the (not so arctic) French Côte d'Azur.

Apart from these zoo series, Susanne has ventured into documentaries about the culture, customs, flora and fauna of far-away places. In her documentary 'Magic of Cappadocia', she reports about life in the famous underground cities of Cappacdocia in Central Anatolia (Turkey).

In an episode of the documentary 'On the road with Starship', she presents animal life in the impenetrable rainforest of Venezuela. The full episode is available on Youtube.

The unconventional convention

ConventionCamp is an annual conference about the future of the Internet. And it is meant to be different!

The organisers do not even want to label it a 'conference', rather a 'non-conference' or 'camp'. 'Those who have left ConventionCamp will think differently about the Internet' is the declared objective. Hence, you would be forgiven to think that ConventionCamp takes place in the Amazon jungle with participants sleeping in tents and fighting for survival. However, it is not quite like that... 

ConventionCamp takes place at the exhibition centre of the - not so thrilling - city of Hanover (Germany). Participants do not seem to sleep in tents either, rather they are offered special rates at the five star Radisson Blu Hotel. And food and drinks are provided for.

Andreas Schoser went through the ConventionCamp experience in November 2010. He spoke about the topic 'Connected Life = Smart Living?!' Being Head of Marketing Planning at Deutsche Telekom, he presented his employer's view on new services in the area of 'connected communication' and 'connected entertainment' taking adavantage of the increasingly interconnected way of living. 

Whether convention(al) or not, it's pretty well connected after all.
