The Next Web Salon is a small and intimate event for people working on, or interested in, the people, ideas and companies powering the Next Web. Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten from the Next Web hosts these events in his living room. Vibrant athmosphere, slow food, good wine, great people and provoking statements by guest speakers. 3 to 4 speakers get 6 minutes each to make their statement. The remaining time is for discussion, social networking, eating and enjoying wine. A brilliant concept as far as I'm concerned. The evening was like a short version of the FastCompany RealTime events, yup, that's a compliment. Boris and his Next Web mates just do the kind of thing you thought of doing once, but never got to doing it.
