The Meeting

From Electriki
Jump to: navigation, search

There's some (rather cool) idea to meet each other. Users of #electronics could finally meet in real life. ;-)

So first of all it's the matter of who would like to be the part of this meeting, second thing is where could it possibly be... To setup the meeting place, domen started up the map available under URL: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=113279147561001867825.00045e8e2bcbef5fc99c0

If you're interested about the meeting, simply mark your location on our map - we'll meet in the middle of it.

BTW. the meeting-date is also open for discussion, so... Stay tuned!

Proposal (also from domen) is: Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle in summer or so? I'm saying "why wait so long!" (I==pit). Mic moans about being busy start of next year. Anyway - let's discuss it on IRC. Conclusions will be posted here as well.


We (some of us..) suggested Berlin as a meeting place. A friend of mine say there should be good "elecronic" vibes at a place called "C-Base" http://www.c-base.org/ for more info. I dont know about the place, but if we choose Berlin, it could be in consideration to visit the place.

Place

Berlin.

Straight from Lonely Planet 'Berlin' booklet:

name dorm bed price single room price twin/double room price breakfast price dist from Hbh. notes
Amstel House 12.5.. 29/33 46/54 5 2km 4-bed en-suite: 80; 4-bed shared: 50; wlan, 24/7 reception, bar
Baxpax Downtown 13..22 30..79 48..93 4 ... most rooms en suite bathrooms, tv, telephone, internet
Circus Hostel Weinbergsweg 17..21 33/46 (priv.bathr.) 50/62 (priv.bathr.) ? ... has cafe, has bar, free wifi
Circus Hostel Rosa-Luxemburgstrasse 17..21 33/45 (priv.bathr.) 50/60 (priv.bathr.) ? ... has bar, has lounge and POOL TABLE lol, free wifi
Citystay Hostel 15..18 34 48 4 ... has restaurant/bar
Heart of Gold Hostel 17..19 40 56 3 ... rooms have showers, has bar/lounge
Mitte's Backpacker Hostel 15..21 30 48/56 (priv.bathr.) ? ... small do-it-yourself kitchen (I think)
Jugendherberge Berlin - International 15 ? ? yes ... too tired to parse url atm :)

(...and yes wankers, 'dist from Hbh.' might be useful; that is semi-in-the-center)

So OK. My $0.02: if you spend a gazillion moneyz on the trip/food/hooke^Wlemonade and what not, it doesn't make that much sense to save EUR10 on a room (if it's worth it, or even if it saves time/walking/effort/etc) -- Michai

Lets put it another way... 100eur saved on 20k car might not seem much, but the wallet doesn't care if you saved 100eur on a car or worked extra hours.

Date

2009-04-24 - Friday

Feel free to add yourself into this table - might be helpfull with further (no, not fuhrer) planning.

<@^Khelben^> On a side note, it looks like i'm heading back via assen (.nl) to meet some other people for a few days
<@pit> As if anyone would even give a fuck about it.
<@michai> indeed, don't bother us with boring details! FFS!
<@michai> oh, BTW,...
<@michai> you ALL have horsefucked faces.

  • Removed dates:
    • has to be before 1st of june. /mic -> tables for april and may only
    • 2nd and 3rd of April - can't go. /pit (p) -> remowed two days
    • before april 27th OR after may 14th. /lex (l) -> removed from tables
    • "after 20th I can do" /khelben (k) meant april -> removed from tables
  • To be discussed:
    • around may 1st, since it's weekend prolonged by holiday in many countries? (you may want to re-check your flight prices in that time. gonna be non-cheap probably cause of holidays (i don't care much about it since i'm coming with train))
    • maybe some of us could reduce their unavailability timeframe so that it doesn't extend +/-1 week before/after something planned? Could get easier to fit some good moment.


Cost of return-travel

Can you please fill this in (#EUR that takes you to this place and back)? If left open, "EUR0" assumed. Put price of "both ways travel together" in here.

Note: this table exists because it is assumed price is a major criterium in deciding where to go; if you don't give a toss, perhaps you can leave it blank (EUR0).

Note: 1GBP ~ 1Euro at the moment

Note: Stanstead (STN) airport is in the middle of nowhere, avoid this if you possibly can
