Late last night I landed in Berlin. I’m taking the stage to discuss the ideas and trends in technology that I think we should be taking notice of. I’ll tell you more about that soon.

But first I wanted to ask Berlin a favor: Whatever it takes, fix your airport — and fast.

Berlin’s claim to be a technology hub of international standing relies on a whole ecosystem of things going right: you need entrepreneurs, you need technologists, you need investment, you need support — and you need to be accessible.

Right now, there is a long way to go. But Brandenburg is an embarrassment that every entrepreneur and startup in Berlin should be shouting about.
