24 days to Sweden Social Web Camp… and I need your help!

Posted on 28. Jul, 2009 by in Uncategorized

You know what? It’s only 24 days to Sweden Social Web Camp!

First I’ll give you a status update, and then I will ask you for help. It will be a long post, and do at least read the section where I ask for help.

  • 200+ participants have registered! Here is a list of some of them.
  • All rooms are booked, but there is plenty of camping space. There is still place in the army tents, if you don’t want to bring your own tent.
  • Latest day for sign up is 7th of August.
  • However… PayPal have temporarily blocked the PayPal account, so you can’t pay right now.  I am working with them to fix this ASAP. Pretty annoying.
  • The agenda is still rather sketchy, as it should according to unconference rules. You will find some topic ideas on the wiki and on the blog by Jens Plan. I love the idea of blogging your ideas already now, so if you feel for it, please do. I will also revise the wiki the topic-page gets more structured.
  • Internet will probably be slow… We have a 2mbit ADSL connection, and I am working on upgrading it, but since we are on an island I am not 100% sure we will manage to do that. (There are three more unused copper lines we maybe could use).
  • A restaurant will cater to all our food needs. There will also be a kiosk with a selection of snacks, I believe. But if you want something extra, you should bring it. We have access to fridges.
  • The latest boat you should catch leaves 18:00 on Friday. That gives us one hour of check in before it all start at 19:00. Arrive earlier if you want, the island is lovely, but I also know that some of you will travel far and can’t make it earlier.

As for sponsors it is going well:

But there are still opportunities to get involved.

  • Friday barbecue. Another 10000 SEK would make the Friday barbecue complete!
  • Saturday lunch will cost 80 kr/person. The price tag for sponsoring the lunch is approximately 18000 SEK. It would be much appreciated!
  • Saturday dinner. This is the main get together. Sponsor whole, 40 000 SEK, or half, 20 000 SEK.
  • In between/late night snack. I guess a couple of thousand SEK for sandwiches etc.
  • The twittering bus from Stockholm! We have still not solved the twittering bus from Stockholm. A lot of people are planning to take it, though, so I hope we can find a solution. The buss is 17500 SEK to rent.
  • “Party”-tents? In case the weather gets bad, I can be handy to have some tents. We have indoor space, but it might get a little crowded, now when we are 200+ participants.

Now you know how things are progressing, and I think we are doing well.

Here is how you can help:

1. Look at the sponsor list and think… :).

  • Do you know a potential sponsor?
  • Maybe your company can help out?

2. The 2 mbit internet connection could be faster… 🙂

  • Do you have great contacts at telecom companies or broad band providers?
  • Do you know someone that works with ADSL and now how to quickly plugin the unused copper-wires to the island?
  • Do you have access to radio link-equipment, so we can hook up to a fiber on the main land?
  • Do you know someone who knows where all fibers in Southern Sweden run?

That’s it for now! Can’t wait to meet you all.

    If the 3G network isn’t all that bad one can buy a couple of routers (1 100 SEK/each) where one can plug in 3G modems and create a wifi hotspot sharing the 3G-connection.

    Hur funkar det med båten? Vilka tider går båtarna? Ingår det i priset? Parkerar man på fastlandet?

    @jonk: Båten ingår i anmälningsavgiften. Du parkerar på fastlandet, Båtresan tar cirka 15 minuter. Båten avgår cirkus varje timme, schemat kommer att anpassas till oss.
