Last Thursday Blogging the City took place in Amsterdam. It turned out to be an unforgettable day with a great selection of leading European bloggers that shared what drives them and inspires them with our online and offline audience. One of them was Rudolf Klöckner, driving force behind Hamburg-based street art blog Urban Shit. He entertained the audience by showing his favorite urban interventions he's come across in the past years. We asked him a few questions right before the conference.

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.
