MedCrunch At DLD 2014 – The Conference Of Intersections



Just a quick announcement that we’ll be reporting from this years DLD Conference. A rather unique event in Munich, organized by german media mogul Hubert Burda. It’s hard to describe what this event is all about, but apart from a bunch of Internet celebrities, authors and thinkers, it’s really a blend of Digital-Life-Design. It’s similar to TED.

This year the conference has a dedicated health track and the mix of panelists gives you a feeling of how broad the spectrum of the conference is going to be.

Gamification & Health

• Peter Vesterbacka, CEO Rovio/Creator of Angry Birds Franchise
• Jennifer Jacquet, Professor & Author NYU

If any of our readers are going to be there (Dr. V?), drop us a line and we’d be happy to meet up. If not then follow MedCrunch for some selected content we’ll be presenting from the event.
