COLOGNE, Germany, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Julian Assange, the most famous Internet activist of our times, is speaking about "Trade and Transparency" at this year's WHD.global. His keynote includes one of only three exclusive live interviews that he is giving this year in Europe. WHD.global, the world's largest hosting and cloud event, takes place April 1-3 at Europa-Park in Rust, Germany. Free registration with the code ME712XG is possible until March 14.
In his keynote on April 2, the mastermind behind the whistleblowing platform WikiLeaks will illustrate the possible impact of the negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Assange sees these trade agreements as a threat for today's freedom in the use of the Internet. However, this freedom is as essential for everyone's easy access to information as for a stable global economy. Assange will be connected live from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Questions from the Press are also possible.
Rasmus Lerdorf, the creator of PHP, and the Joomla! founder Brian Teeman are also speaking live at WHD.global. In a panel discussion, the two Internet pioneers are giving a vivid impression of how their ideas have evolved to great successes, even if it was not the way it was planned.
Furthermore, numerous keynote speakers from international IT companies such as Intel, HP, Microsoft, Dell, AMD, Parallels, Samsung and Verisign, as well as many inspiring startups and hosting insiders are going to share their best practices.
WHD.global is the main event of the WorldHostingDays series. Created exclusively for the hosting and cloud industry, all WHD events include an exhibition, a conference, and networking opportunities. In 2014 WorldHostingDays celebrate their 10th anniversary with many surprises for the attendees.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
