He has co-founded and chaired many acclaimed emerging technology conferences including ThingsCon, UIKonf and Cognitive Cities Conference, and served as co-chair of Interaction16. He also co-founded travel & souvenir magazine Dearsouvenir.
His projects, thoughts and other antics have been featured in Forbes, New York Times, The Guardian, WIRED, ZDF, ZEIT and many others. He blogs at thewavingcat.com.
Earlier Peter co-founded Third Wave, which was part think tank, part digital strategy consultancy and worked for clients like MTV Europe, Postbank and ZEIT Online. And before that, he worked as a freelance strategist, working on a number of projects ranging from web strategy to social media to project management to election campaigning for clients such as ARTE, Google, Netzpiloten, SPD, Tumblr, WoltersKluwer, as well several agencies and public broadcasters.
