Davos 2011: Tuesday/Wednesday

January 23 2011

The programme day-by-day of the 2011 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos – or Davos-Klosters, as it became in 2008.

Title: Shared Norms for the New Reality. Will the new Congress Centre have the intimacy of the old?

The WEF’s otherwise vastly improved website is not showing the full programme. Strangely, it is accessible only to participants. I have borrowed a password. Last year I could link to every session with a single cut and paste.

Registered participants get everything at an online Kiosk – which is part of the WEF parallel interactive site called WELCOM. There’s also a good mobile app for participants and a useless one for “fans”.

Is it me, or is some of this programming flat and routine? Session information is more or less as given, including numbering. I have taken out times and locations. I can’t link to speaker biographies or communities and initiatives.

The anti-Davos, the World Social Forum, takes place in Dakar, Senegal on February 6-11.
