HOT, Hacking–>Sauna

Category: Research — Biella @ 7:45 pm

Lest one think that hacking occurs just on the net, locality of no importance, think again. Here was an announcement made today on a Debian mailing list.

Those Finnsss know how to lead the good life, sauna, free software, codfish…

There has been a little bit of interest in a Debian sauna in Helsinki,
Finland, which I sort of proposed on IRC and my log. My plans are now
more concrete. I propose the weekend of July 2-4. This is the weekend
after GUADEC 2004[1], which is in southern Norway. The proximity might
make it possible for some people to visit both.

Thus, the plan is for people to arrive on Friday or Saturday and hang
around until Sunday. There will be at least one visit to a sauna[2]
(nudity is not required, whatever Wikipedia says), probably on Saturday.
You can sleep on my living room floor, if you don’t want to pay for a
hotel; I only have an extra mattress. I have ADSL. We can make food
ourselves, or go eat out. If the weather is favorable, a picnic at
Suomenlinna[3] would probably be nice. Helsinki has other sightseeing
opportunities as well.

This is meant as a social occasion, but hacking is of course allowed.

If you’re interested, let me know. Since arranging this doesn’t require
much from me, there is no real deadline.
