No worries: The summer break is long over. It only took us a while to write a thorough Fader update post. Because everybody in the consortium (DW Innovation, Euronews, Vragments) has been really busy.

There have been discussions, meetings, workshops, and hacking sessions all over the place: Berlin, Bonn, Lyon, NYC, London, Munich – and picturesque Singen.
