Me and Claes Jakobsson had a talk in #curl the other day about how we rarely meet Open Source people in the Stockholm Sweden area outside of our own little circles and friends.
In that moment we decided we’d try to arrange a meeting. Free Sofware and Open Source people in the area. In one place. Possibly involving beer. And why not some talks by some clueful people? We’re aiming for it to happen already during early spring 2010, but no date has been set yet.
We’ve already sent out a few mails to people, and we’ve posted about this idea at a few places and now I’ve setup a dedicated mailing list for this purpose. The foss-sthlm mailing list.
Do you want to participate at a meeting like this?
Do you want to help arranging the meeting and get the word spread in all the communities that we would like to get the word spread to?
Do you have any experience in arranging a meeting of this sort? We currently have no idea if people are interested enough, or if we get people interested how many we might be able to attract!
Do you by any chance have connections or friends at companies that would be interested in helping out with sponsorships or similar? My company (Haxx) will certainly make a contribution.
Don’t be shy. Join in and help us get some fun going.
Update: we now have web site monitoring our progress.

This seems like a great initiative! I would definitively attend had I lived in that part of the country.
Very good idea! 😀
I am not sure I can participate, but I would like to.
I am interested!
