As the dust is settling after the kicking conference in Munich, and the DLD crowd is dispersing into all cardinal directions, we want to share some of the highlights from this year's conference.

DAY 1

Sunday afternoon focused on the topic of big data with Rick Smolan prophesying that "2013 is set to be a year the human race looks back on," and DJ Patil reminding the audience"to keep the human in the loop of data".

The first day of DLD13 also called for more tech literacy with Zach Sims from Code Academy saying that "computer science needs to go mainstream and it needs to be more interactive than simply classroom learning".

Change was also the theme for the "Future of Authority" panel, introduced by Steffi Czerny who said: "Once upon a time, journalists were heroes, but that was long before social networks were challenging the authority of established media."

While journalism is affected by social media, so is the connection between citizens and governments - Alec Ross, Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was in conversation with NYT journalist Nick Bilton, about the new methods of the US government in relation to social media and communication technology.

DAY 2

"At DLD you find the future of market disruptions," said Joe Schoendorf in his introduction to the mobile payment quartet of panels. Renè Schuster (Telefonica) predicts that telecommunication companies are becoming data companies and said that "the children born today, will not possess a physical wallet in 20 years."

More developments with a futuristic approach was the 3D printing session. It allowed the audience to envisage a world in which we use materials and resources most efficiently by printing all the necessities of life - from food to jewellery.

Day 2 of dld13 also taught us to beware that "the happy days of hackers are over." Eugene Kaspersky and Miko Hypponen outlined a cyber world at the brink of warfare. While David Kenny, from the Weather Channel, was in conversation with climate change experts and Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, President of Iceland. The panel called for a global approach to climate problems and the IT community to bring its abilities to use and have a positive impact on climate change.

DAY 3

Patterns that connect was dld13's über-motto, inspired by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi. On the final day of the conference he came on stage and spoke about network theory 2.0.

The day continued with finding out about the potential that lies in collecting and analysing big data, especially in light of creating comparative advantages for companies.

The topic of how business can "do good" was not only discussed by the Philanthropy 3.0 panel but also addressed by Peter Thiel held who gave the final key-note of the conference, in which he called for "accepting exceptionalism".
