Just arrived and now online. As expected many dressed people arrive minute per minute in Potsdam. Expensive black armored cars drive in minute by minute. An enormous amout of people for many different press agencies arrive. Cars with satellite dashes are parked behind the lecture hall. What is the atmosphere like? Some white tents are errected on the green gras, the mandatory flags trio is hoisted and the building shines in its cleanest way. Additionally, the new HPI logo has been attached at two places, just in time! Now the mystery about those TFT screen is solved, they occured at the ceiling of the Foyer displaying additional meta information about the Potsdamer institute for IT excellence.
In some minutes, Prof. Plattner will open the IT summit with the Minister for Economic Affairs Glos.
