Very nice wrap up Sebastian.

I've got nothing more to say, a part that is was fun and really
looking forward for that kind of spirit in Amsterdam at the Summit.
Just make it there.

> Hi everyone,
> Yes, I know, technically, the onedotzero event isn't really over yet,

> you're in London tonight and have no idea what I'm talking about,
> swing by BFI (near Waterloo) and follow the big light screens.
> For the past 3 days, I've been meeting up with people involved
> closely, and not so closely with the maemo.org community. For those
> who have been hiding in caves for the past few months, onedotzero is
> an organisation that aims at representing all type of art, without any
> format discrimination. Anyone who performs any kind of art or creative
> work is highly welcome. The onedotzero event in London, hosted at the
> BFI, spanning from Wednesday until tomorrow was a showcase of all the
> very dynamic, fluffly, electronic, vibrant and colourful ideas and
> artists that enable onedotzero to be what it is today.
> Over the past few weeks, lcuk has been helping onedotzero to create an
> application that allowed people to interact with text displayed on a
> wall, without any wires, effort, or complexity. A video of this is
> available here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX2KGh-aUno
> On Thursday night, there was an open presentation + QA about Open
> Source, and how it can help design a creative world. This presentation
> was led by a few panelists (Joel Gethin Lewis, Alexandra
> Deschamps-Sonsino and our very own, Nokia's Harri Kiljander) and each
> of them explained their views, and how Open Source shaped their work.
> Today, there was a presentation by Jussi Makinen (luovanto, Nokia
> Marketing), Andrew Flegg (Jaffa, Maemo Council) and Gary Birkett
> (lcuk, maemo.org community member and liqbase creator) during which
> they introduced the n900 device, Maemo platform, maemo.org community
> and the huge potential that the whole Maemo experience is bringing to
> everyone. The point of this performance (and it was quite a
> performance) was to show how designers could benefit and also bring a
> huge amount of quality and benefits to our community.
> During these few days, a few local Maemoists have had the opportunity
> to come together and socialise properly. We've had the chance to meet
> Simon (lardman), Aniello (anidel), Valério (VDVsx), Andrew (Jaffa),
> Gary (lcuk), Jussi (luovanto), Harri (kiljander), Faheem (qwerty12),
> and maybe a few others that I don't remember.
> Thanks to all for making it happen, it was highly interesting, a
> definite success and on a social note, absolutely fantastic to meet
> all of you. A big thank you obviously to everyone at onedotzero (no
> idea if they're reading this), BFI, and Redbull.
> Another random video when just generally messing about, but still
> cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk27PenpAz0
