Today: Blogging The City

Ladies and gentlemen, today is the day! This afternoon and evening, we’re bringing together a selection of Europe’s leading bloggers at Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam, to share what drives them, inspires them, and what their ideas are when it comes to topics such as urban development, architecture, food, design, bicycle culture, street art, and new media. Thanks to generous support of Philips, there’ll be a live stream available for the entire conference! Blogging the City starts at 14:00 local time (CEST), so there’s two hours left for you to run to the supermarket to buy some popcorn and soda.
