The re:publica re:ader, devised as an official conference documentation two years ago, will again be available at #rp15 this year, by now in its third edition. In the meantime, we have modified and perfected the concept: Our accomplices in producing the “fastest book in the world” are the self-publishing platform epubli and the German Journalism School (DJS) in Munich again, and for the first time this year, the daily newspaper Berliner Zeitung.
Guided by experienced editors from the Berliner Zeitung, the journalism students will produce a comprehensive re:ader for every day of the conference from a newsroom on-site at the STATION-Berlin. The e-magazine highlights the most important re:publica topics in an appealing manner, presenting articles and multimedia content, from video clips, pictories and sound bites, to the latest news and quotes from the Twittersphere from you, the attendees.
The re:ader is literally published overnight by epubli, remains available for download until 12 am the next morning, and is then transferred to the Apple, Google, Amazon and other e-book stores. The conference re:ader has turned into a great success, with last year’s edition for instance downloaded several thousand times.
Updates and further details on the re:ader are available on Twitter under the hashtags #rp15 and #rdr15.
