hi all,

since i won't be able to make it to philly, but really wanted to
attend, i thought maybe it would be fun to spread this event over two
time zones?  i have office space (decent internet, projector, etc.) in
the heart of berlin for about five people; if more are interested, we
could keep looking for something bigger.

i guess you could argue that the point of hackathons is to avoid
having more technology (video talks, conference lines, chat) in the
way of communication, but at the same time i would like to gather some
more experience with holding distributed events.  i think it can be

but before i start advertising, i would like to ask you organisers and
attendees: how do you feel about the idea?  would you like to link up
with us if i find people to attend in berlin, or would you prefer me
to stay out of your way?

looking forward to reading your thoughts,

PS: in case that makes a difference: i'm interested in working on
snap, but you should probably count me into the watch-and-learn
category among the attendees.
