PatchPierre is a site dedicated to analog modular synthesis, and especially his own Doepfer A-100 Analog Modular Synthesizer. Here you will find post on 100 -tips, -patches, sound-examples and other general (analog) synthesizer-tips.
This year Superbooth takes place again in Berlin from May 9-11th.
As promised in a recent interview with Dieter Doepfer, the company will be focussing on the public demand for smaller modules this year.
Especially the live Eurorack performers would love to see these new modules, which are basically smaller versions and re-designs of Doepfer's 'greatest hits'.

Early contributors to this blog DivKid and Felix from the Tuesday Night Machine finally had the time to have a talk with Dieter Doepfer at a recent Thomann event...
" A rare moment of free time and having great people in the right place at the right time here's an interview with Felix of Tuesday Night Machines talking to Dieter Doepfer, THE CREATOR OF EURORACK at the Thomann Synth
Robin Vincent of MoltenModular had the opportunity to sit down with Dieter Doepfer, the inventor of the Eurorack format, and chat about modular with a specific focus on his new polyphonic range of modules.

I recently found these 2 older videos with Dieter Doepfer from video collective "Open Video Medien Labor", an open non commercial platform for video art.
As far as I know it is an open project - step by step - which could possibly finish with a Doepfer movie.
I like the way it is filmed anyway... but i have the feeling that it might become a looooong project.
I contacted the makers and hope to
On December 6th of last year, SchneidersLaden in Berlin had Dieter Doepfer as a special guest.
Dieter baked cookies (yes), gave a modular beginner workshop, did a presentation of his latest products and performed an interesting liveset.
You can see the A-197-3 VCO controlled RGB LED prototype in this video too (the dynamic LED control start about at 6:40)
Schneidersladen uploaded four videos
Interesting that Doepfer's latest modules include some cool small, nifty non-musical utility modules.
Last time they announced the 4 x USB eurorack power supply, and now this one:
