2nd all that (except the hashtag!). Just wanted to encourage to not pull back on promoting the event asap (but doing the blog post later/complete). I have already heard (twice) "What? The day AFTER Fronteers, oh noes, we've already booked our trip back that day...".

Hi Paul,
Just a couple of points:

 *   Since the event isn't until October, I would wait with posting to the blog until all the details are worked out (exact location, Eventbrite, etc.) before posting on the WPD blog
 *   I'd vote for removing the paragraph "If you run a meetup, user group or other community, and are..." unless there is a strong focus on that (may be confusing)
 *   Are we using #wpds as a hashtag for our Doc Sprints? It is not very descriptive. We used webplatformdocsprintSF at the last one (granted, it's a lot longer, but a little bit more meaningful)
 *   I would also mention the Fronteers conference in the post (something like "this event takes place on Saturday October 12th—the day after the Fronteers conference.)
 *   The sprint is really close to the date of the first anniversary of Web Platform. Maybe we can mention that--come celebrate by helping out! <insert picture of a giant cake in the form of the WPD logo>.

Hi, Paul-

First, thanks a million for doing this!

Second, I think a blog post on blog.webplatform.org<http://blog.webplatform.org> would be a great idea. Scott or Julee, if you can work with Paul on that (or find the right person to do so), it would be sweet.

(I really wish I could go myself... :( Maybe I'll try to find a good excuse to do so... like working with PPK on the compatibility tables project...)

Thanks for the responses.
Is someone willing to write a blog post on blog.webplatform.org<http://blog.webplatform.org>
<http://blog.webplatform.org>? The blogpost on the Fronteers website

will be online tomorrow.

I'm aslo working on an Eventbrite page and I've basically copied Jay's
version for Berlin and altered a few things.

Can someone please check if this is correct? Thanks!

    recall anything about running doc sprints generally other than the
    link to the plan for the Berlin doc sprint that Chris mentioned. We
    had started a Doc Sprint in a Box along these lines, but I'm not
    sure where that is.

    Ummm, I was meant to have a go at writing it when Peter got really
    busy…but then I got really busy too ;-)

    it was the CSS Properties project. We may have completed that
    project by October or it will be in review, I think. So we'll need a
    "big" project to work on in Amsterdam. I'm not sure, but I think the
    next big project may be the DOM APIs. We're presently doing the
    research around that project.
