Swedish meetups? March 28, 2009 8:56 AM   Subscribe

Has there ever been a meetup in Sweden? Are there enough of us to warrent a meet up or will the three of us just feel awkward? Maybe a Scandinavian combo? Malmö would be close enough for Danes to bridge, and for Norwegians to ski? (I keed)

There has been at least one, in Malmö, which by all accounts was a success.

Yeah we all ended up in my house in the wee hours and sveskemus did a great mix on my turntables with one part blue peter and one part for a fistful of dollars. I guess you had to be there.

I'd ski there, but with all this global warming and shit, I can barely make it to Oslo, let alone Malmö.

I am up for Stockholm. Been keeping an eye out for a post like this :)

We should maybe post a link here to the people in our "close to you" lists on profile page?

There has been one meetup in Copenhagen and one in Malmö. Both were great fun. I'd be up for another Malmö meetup.

(Oh, I'd be up for another Copenhagen meetup too, btw.)

Hum, maybe this should be combined with the 10th anniversary that's coming up?

Oh, and depending on the date I'm all for GBG/MLM/STHLM.

Haha, oh uandt I had the same idea as I was falling asleep last night. MeFiFinlandsfärja! Then I chuckled myself to sleep.

Haha, oh man. I'd probably be up for a meetup in Stockholm, BTW.

Not in Scandinavia myself (but, oh how I loved it for the too, too short time I was there).

But this: MeFiFinlandsfärja!

Please do this. It would be AMAZING. I took the ferry on Midsummer once: it was kooky and weird, and would have been ten million times more awesome with MeFites.

I actually would consider this if it was on June 5 when Black Lips is playing on the boat but then it would be more of a MeFi throwup.

I get ever so seasick. So which city did y'all settle on?
posted by dabitch at 11:21 PM on March 30, 2009

MeFiFi sounds brilliant if for no other reason than being able to use that name.

How do wo tally who would be interested in going where? Can we set up a voting function?

(I'm still looking for work, so am uncertain about when I'm available. Barring wage slavery I'm up for the STHLM ferry or whatever)
