IFA 2006 Convention
IFA 2006 Convention : The information society is now a well-established reality and the next trend to appear on the horizon is that of the entertainment society. There have been enormous developments in digital technology in recent years and now it is the users themselves who are the driving force behind some far-reaching changes. Homo Sapiens Digitalis can consume, produce and exchange content whenever and wherever he wants to, and in every conceivable way. He has become an accomplished user, but forms a hard to reach target group, and as a consumer he is both smart and increasingly unpredictable. The IFA Convention 2006 - Common Life Technologies 2006 - is held from September 4 - 6, 2006 in Berlin, Germany. |
