This years’ Web 2.0 Expo Europe Conference is happening October 21-23 in Berlin. Judging by the bulk of the tweets today it’s very well-attended. From the Conference site:

“To meet the increasing demand for Web 2.0 comprehension and skills, and to foster a broader European Web 2.0 community, O’Reilly Media and Techweb launched Web 2.0 Expo Europe in 2007. A companion event to the Web 2.0 Summit and the U.S. Web 2.0 Expos in San Francisco and New York, this event is the conference and tradeshow for everyone looking to embrace and build on the opportunities created by Web 2.0 technologies.”

There is a Web 2.0 Expo account on Twitter, though it seems more directed at attendees, than casual fans. You can, however, catch slideshows, etc. from the Web 2.0 Expo Proceedings. Some really good stuff there so far. News and other coverage is also available.

According to todays trends, it’s a good day for a BarCamp. What’s a BarCamp? From wikipedia:

“BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.”

Looks like (at the very least) there’s a BarCamp happening in Berlin, Atlanta, Washington, DC, and Nashville today. If you think you might be interested in attending one in your area (or starting one if none exist) check out for the latest information.
