Chillin’Competition Conference- Thank you!

with one comment


As we are getting ready for the Chillin’Competition conference tomorrow we feel we should express our gratitude once again.

Thanks to you for following the blog and for the  interest in this event, which has exceeded our expectations and flooded my email , and apologies once again to the more than 200 people in the waiting list (we owe you one!)

We will report on how the conference goes, but for the time being we would also like to thank the conference sponsors and speakers; they have made it possible (and free) and they have our gratitude.

We are very much looking forward to it

What is a platform and should they be regulated?

with 2 comments

What kind of animal

I spoke yesterday in Brussels at an event organized by CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies) under the title “What is a platform and should they be regulated?”.

I will not develop my views here now because (i) I don’t have the time, and, most importantly, (ii) we will very soon be engaging in an “inter-platform dialogue” on this subject with the blog run by our friends (and conference sponsors) at CCIA.

In the meantime, and as a teaser, my presentation is available here: CEPS_Regulating Platforms_Lamadrid , and a short video interview is available here [Youtube, as an “evil platform” seems to have altered the content of the video, as I’m clearly way better looking live 😉  ]
