Maemo Community Council at the MeeGo Conference
Your whole Maemo Community Council will be available at the MeeGo Conference this year, and have opened themselves up to a number of communication channels to make sure you can get in touch; including a talk.maemo.org thread: During the conference, however busy we are we will try to check this thread. If you hear or read something and want us to go and ask questions, post them here. If you want to find out how we've got on (or whether we've fallen out and are not speaking each other), you'll find it here. We'll try to keep some sort of real time reactions in here. Blogging our well thought out responses will come afterwards: this will be a bit raw. If you're attending the conference here in Dublin, be sure to seek them out and say "Hi!".

Dave Neary organised and judged the contest: The winning bridge, made by the team “The Unbreakables”, Casper van Donderen, Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen and Sivan Greenberg, survived the shopping basket we used as the breaking tool, with 25 1L bottles of water on top – impressive! The bridge was eventually broken when Chani tried to hang off it.

Attendance was high and a lot of subjects were covered by the council, the maemo.org staff and the community attendees: There are still a number of open-ended questions pertaining to the current maemo.org "ownership" and infrastructure. Now that the m.o staff is employed by the community, a few philosophical shifts must be made. As of today's meeting, we have decided to create a Read the minutes at the link below.
Get involved with creating next week's MWKN issue at MeeGoConf
This issue of MWKN was produced in the MeeGo Conference breakout area, with a number of people coming along to help; and Tim Samoff helping Ryan Abel and Andrew Flegg with editing duties: Getting involved as a contributor, or an editor (to help with putting the issue together), couldn't be easier; and we'd love to have more people involved. Please feel free to get involved ahead of time or - if you're going to around on Sunday evening - let me know, and you can either come along and help edit the issue; give us moral support or just get a flavour of what it is we do. If you'd like to get involved, either as a contributor or as an editor, and couldn't make it; links are in the article.
