I AM IN ICELAND (and you should be too): I've got a bunch of free time on the 29th and so does Great Swell, can we meet y'all before or after we go to The Pearl at 8? We're staying dead center downtown and up for anything (but we do have to leave for the US the next day so not ANYTHING anything) Also we're free after 5pm on the 27th, Sunday, if that is better.
Update to a closed thread: Earlier this year Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir was appointed by the president and parliament of Iceland to be caretaker prime minister until new elections could be held, in the process becoming the world's first head of government to be openly gay. Yesterday she lead her Social Democratic party to victory in parliamentary elections, ensuring that she will continue to serve as prime minister for the foreseeable future.
I met Marisa Stole the Precious Thing for coffee earlier today and he and I thought it was about time Iceland had a MetaFilter meet-up. So, MeFites in Reykjavík and nearby towns, are you game for a meet-up on January 2nd?
Iceland Airwaves meetup: Reykjavik, 15-19th October. [more inside]
Anyone going to be at Iceland Airwaves week after next? Lots of musicians and musical tourists around here; enough blue-tinged folk to make a meetup worth having?
