To where, or not to where?

Ok, so we need to nail this one down. Where should No More Sweden 2009 take place? Since there are so many loose ends to this mess, I decided to create a simple table over the current options. You find it here:

If you have more information for the blank spots in the table, or if you have new additions, please reply to this post! Thanks!

Answer

Hi everybody,

Since I was mentioned in the previous post I feel that I have to write some kind of answer.

What I know:

The event will happen and it’s going to be in the middle/end of July, either 16 – 19th or 23 – 26th. That’s the time when most people are able to come according to the survey. Expect definitive dates within a few weeks.

What I don’t know:

Where the event will happen. The backup plan is the basement from last year. It has a few flaws though (no internet access for example!) so if someone knows about a good place, PLEASE TELL ME!

Finally I’d like to say that it’s awesome that so many people are interested in attending, especially from other countries! Contrary to what our silly name might suggest I really would like this to be an international affair, only that it’s a bit closer to my home than IGF.

If anyone got any questions, post them in the comments or e-mail me. Finally — huge thanks to Jens for setting this up, great job!

Take care,

Erik

Up and Running

Hey hey! Welcome to the No More Sweden information site! Took me a while to figure out all this wordpress stuff, but I found this cute skin, so now it’s all good again. I’ve also installed phpBB, just in case (“argh god damnit, not another bullentin board!”).

So… The big question is… why? Well, there could be many reasons, but here are mine:

  1. People email me and ask about No More Sweden. I tell them, “I don’t know anything, ask Erik,” and I have my suspicions that Erik doesn’t exactly know either. We will know something soon enough, though!
  2. Some information is posted at TIGSource, but not all NMS participants are frequent readers in those forums. Also, the signal-to-noise ratio has unfortunately worsened a lot lately. It’s fun, of course, but it can be hard to find out what’s going on sometimes.
  3. For people who won’t be attending, it could be nice to have somewhere to find pictures and maybe games created during the event. I know this is a long-shot, however, since it implies that somebody actually is going to keep this site updated after the event…

Anyway… expect some disturbances while we get this site up and running. Please contact me if you think you should be a moderator here, or simply want to post information about No More Sweden (or anything related to it).

Cheers!
