I'm going to Berlin!

Ok. So, I am pretty flipping excited. has just approved sponsorship for me to travel to Berlin (as in Germany) this September for the and the first annual conferences!

I am excited for several reasons:

  1. OSiM World is rad.
  2. I get to meet a bunch of my fellow cohort. (I can’t wait to see all of you!)
  3. I get to immerse myself in two straight days of Maemo goodness. (Maybe even document it in some sort of special way.)
  4. And, well… I’ve never been to Europe! (Really.)

Seriously… This is more exciting than I could ever express here.

Thank you Nokia/Maemo — and, most notably, — for continuing to support this community in such an amazing way.

Woohoo, Tim! This is super-duper groovy. Not only do you get to see Europe for the first time, you also get to geek out with your Maemo buddies. Wonderful news.

Hey, I haven’t been here in ages. Two things: this is still probably my favorite blog / site design ever and I still envy it. And, have a splendid time in Berlin. Run Lola Run.

I’m looking forward to meeting you; now to find an interesting row of taps to work through together… :)

Hey cool. I was in Berlin a month and a bit ago and was really intrigued. It’s a really cool place. Do a free walking tour, the one i went on meets at starbucks near the brandenburg gate.

Congrats! I went to Europe (just Germany actually) this year at Spring Break, and despite herding 15 cats… er.. teenagers around, I LOVED it. Berlin is my absolute favorite city in the world. You’re guaranteed to love it or your flight is free! ;)

Well, er, my flicht is free anyway. :p (I’m emailing you with some questions.)

Hehe. Well, I don’t know if my excitement will subside. So far, it’s hanging on good. :-)
