[hackerspaces] Announcement: Scandinavian hackerspace IRC meeting this Sunday

Hey all,

On Sunday the 10th of January 2010 at 19:00 UTC+1(*) there will be an  
IRC meeting in #scanhack on the IRC server "labitat.dk" (that is, no  
"irc.") using SSL on port 6697. You can also use our webchat here: https://labitat.dk:9000/ 
  -- but instead of #labitat put in #scanhack as the channel name. The  
meeting will be in English, so curious people are *more* than welcome  
to join.

The point is to discuss a possible meetup for Scandinavian  
hackerspaces this summer, as well as trying to establish a umbrella  
organization comprising of the hackerspaces in (but not necessarily  
limited to) Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland  
and Denmark. The idea is that if we organize on a cross-border scale  
we'll be able to raise money "on a EU scale" and have various import  
agreements (Mate, Mate, Mate), for example.

The meetup next summer should include talks on starting and  
maintaining hackerspaces, as well as general hacker talks and workshops.

Disclaimer: Please note that all of this are *my* ideas of what is  
going to happen, if you have something to add, think I have it all  
wrong, or want to object to anything, then by all means come talk to  
me/us on Sunday :-)

Here goes the agenda (as it looks right now -- if you want to discuss  
something, please add it: http://piratepad.net/hOsuh3vg0R):

Quick recap of what happened at the CCC Scandinavian workshop
Discussion about ScanHack2010 (working title)
When (shouldn't collide with other hacker stuff, HOPE, Defcon, CCC,  
what else?)
Name (can we have "hack" in it)
Need of an IT infrastructure / Communications platform between  
Scandinavian hackerspaces
Umbrella organization
Should we do it? Pros, cons?
Domains in "our" possession: hackerspace.dk, hackerspaces.dk,  
Free domains: hackerspace.fi, hackerspaces.fi, hackerspaces.se,  
EU financing
Lobby work?
Should we be political?
Who wants to manage it all? It's probably a pretty serious workload;  
Presentation of project ideas (add yourselves here: http://piratepad.net/hOsuh3vg0R)
Random ramblings/Misc.
Next meeting.

See you on Sunday evening (*) in #scanhack at labitat.dk/6697 with  
SSL. Feel free to hang out in the channel until then, too :-)

Best regards,
