Stowe visited Berlin and shares his findings about 'cultural differences' (and two equally 'useless slides'):
"I found the cultural differences in Germany pretty significant. Very few women in the extremely nerdish attendees, and while the group seemed oriented toward building and using web apps, the German web culture is jammed with German language knock-offs of English language applications. As a result, it seems relatively insular, inwardly focussed. The same seems true of their blogging community."
I hope he does not consult, based on this/his observations, US companies on how to make money in Germany ... and yes, he is still on my feed-reader
