Smart Country, a Constitution for Platforms and Data from Space: MediaTech Hub Potsdam at re:publica 2022

“Anywhere the wind blows” is sung by Freddy Mercury at the end of Bohemian Rhapsody – and this line in the song served as the motto for the re:publica digital conference when it was held again after a two-year break due to the pandemic. The four-day event at the beginning of June attracted 25,000 visitors, and included 400 sessions with 700 speakers. While the light summer wind blew over the outdoor area of Arena Berlin, there were discussions going on in the darkened hall that, very much in keeping with re:publica’s orientation, were not just focussing on purely digital and media technology, but also addressed such socio-political issues as sustainability, climate change and social change. Many representatives from the MediaTech Hub were part of the programme.
