Paul Klee exhibition in Paris

April 14-July 19
Musée de l'Orangerie
Paris, France

This exhibition organized with the Beyeler Fondation from Basel (Switzerland) presents a selection of masterpieces by Swiss artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) collected since the 1940's by Ernst Beyeler. The collector gathered works covering the entire career of the painter, but he focused on the later part of his career rather than the early one, therefore the Paris exhibition follows the same trend.

Chirp Twitter conference

Palace of Fine Arts Theatre
San Francisco, CA, USA.

The first official Twitter developer conference will be held in San Francisco under the title of "Chirp." Speakers include Twitter CEO and co-founder Evan Williams, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Director of Platform at Twitter Ryan Sarver, Twitter COO Dick Costolo, CoTweet Cofounder and Chief Architect Aaron Gotwalt, and O'Reilly Media Founder and CEO Tim O'Reilly. One full day of the conference will be dedicated to hacking Twitter during the "24 hour Hack Day." Conference-goers will be able to sit down alongside Twitter's top developers, getting hacking tips from the best in the industry and will be able to share their ideas about Twitter.
