I may add that we have a tradition of doing "hands-on Semantic Desktop 
hacks" in Berlin,
every year in April.

Next year I would like to open it to more practical people calling it 
"hands on Semantic Web Applications".
Its usually a three-day event with morning talks, afternnoon free time 
for hacking and discussion, evenings with social events.
Entrance fee of about 20-50 for coffee and location and t-shirt and 

attendees agreed that this format worked great, see video and blogpost:

I wonder if this can be somehow "sweoized" or not...


It was Susie M Stephens who said at the right time 30.11.2007 00:50 the 
following words:
> Hi Kjetil,
> Thanks for this suggestion. SemanticCampLondon definitely sounds like something that it would be good for us to promote. However, the timing isn't really good for combining it with a SWEO F2F.
> Cheers,
