For the World of Tomorrow

We can get 5000 euro for a project if it wins the contest "For the World of Tomorrow". All we have to do is submit an idea and to have people voting for it. Ideas that can be forwarded here are any idea that helps bringing about a more sustainable world.

Visawiki and Sharewiki

Probably after reading the stream of info I started sending out through Robin got slightly too excited, but in the end I managed to set up both and today.

I'm actually trying to squeeze them into one MediaWiki directory together with Cashwiki and Trashwiki. I still need to figure out a couple of tech things (e.g. sharing extensions and different image directories).

Hitch to Trash and vice versa

Sometimes ideas are just to obvious to not happen. Trashwiki was created in the week that Hitchwiki reached 1000 articles (in its English language version). This week Trashwiki reached 100 articles and today we set up convenient links from Trashwiki to Hitchwiki and vice versa.

Hitchhiker's Meeting

Enschede, Netherlands

The German hitchhikers Society abgefahren e.V. invites any hitchhiker to a hitchhikers meeting on Saturday, 29th November 2008, in Enschede, Netherlands.
Enschede is located directly at the German border and is easy to reach from most directions. It has a direct connection with the A1 (Netherlands) and the German A30 (Germany) as part of the main route Amsterdam-Berlin.

There will be some workshops and we are planning to work on some projects for abgefahren and hitchwiki. You are welcome to add your own ideas/projects/whatever.

Bye casa!

Before leaving to Wendland I'd like to share some upcoming events, to stay, or even get in touch with you.
* Firstly there is this so called 'yearly hacker meeting' in berlin by the ccc from 27th to 29th Decembre.

Let me out!

There is no getting out of that place! It's the second time I fail hitch-hiking away from Amsterdam! And this time it was a freaking masquerade...

First gas station. Walking distance from the tram.

4 people on the road

Four friends left hitchhiking and one just got stranded hopelessly (again). Guess who? Sitarane first send me a weird txt: "Just left the station (2h!). Two guys from Hamburg wanted 200 euro for the trip and a woman convinced them to take me for free. And gave me 20 euro... What?" And now he just called. The guys dropped him somewhere at the airport, which is in the other direction and just before it is getting dark now, Julien still wants to make it back to Hamburg... How would the others be making it Today? Fleur to Metz, and Marc and Kasya South to Eindhoven...

Bewelcome press-stuff done!

After the tsolife-page on Bevolunteer, I finally managed to get around creating the press-page for BeWelcome. Still some stuff to do here, but it is there at last :) I also re-opened the debate on the accessibility of the wiki, let's see how quick we can unlock it. Next thing is to work on a proposal for an alternative CS-ambassador-system.

Greetings to casa!

After that somehow complicated trip from Braunschweig to here I really enjoyed that warm welcome on Wednesday 8 pm!

The scene was great. People sitting on the carpet around an unlegged table sharing fine food and entertaining stories in candle light and smooth music. After four days beeing here I really can say - this all day life here. Thanks to all of you!
