ABOUT THIS DIGTATORSHIP

Outstanding discussions with pioneers in the world of international marketing and media: That is both the mission and the benchmark of this digital digtatorship. As an independent media magazine based in Munich, we report on the influence of rapidly growing digitalization within the economy, society and culture. Our editorial team, made up of 28 journalists, is continually on the hunt for business pioneers, thought leaders and freethinkers. Our editorial choices follow a simple rule: We only talk to those in the media who really have something to say. This is not an easy task in an industry where the plans and ideas of many are often just pipe dreams. But as Hermann Hesse put it, we have to try the impossible to achieve the possible. Whether we’ll succeed with this endeavor remains to be seen. If so, then feel free to applaud us. And if not, then voice your anger and direct your criticism at our Digtator in person:

  • Collective brainpower

    Dirk Ahlborn relies on a community of experts, engineers and worldwide enthusiasts.

  • "I’d rather have a top NASA scientist for 10 hours per week than an average one working full time."

Dirk Ahlborn, CEO at Hyperloop

A pneumatic tube for people

Dirk Ahlborn isn’t a typical start-up CEO. With his Hyperloop, a kind of super high-speed train that can travel at the speed of sound, he wants nothing less than to change the world. Born in Berlin, he now spends most of his time in California, but he has assembled a worldwide team of experts to work on the project.
