LoicGermanyMarch04


Joi's Wiki has moved to [WWW]a new SocialText wiki

I have borrowed a wiki page from Joi (thanks !) to help setup the German Tour I am making from March 8 to 12. If you do not know how to use a wiki (I am still learning and this page looks terrible, anyway I doubt you don't but, just have a look at the help it is well done or please ask me. The simplest is just to copy the syntax of another line if you want say to make a link and modify it when you are in edit mode.)

I would love to meet as many German bloggers as I can so if you could help me promote this trip and the dinners in the cities in Germany by posting it on your blogs if you like, I would really appreciate, thanks in advance !

Please add your comments in the below list, I have tried to gather the list of friends (and friends of friends ;=) in Germany but may have missed some of you I apologize in advance if it is the case, please correct me.

Anybody is welcome to join, of course, for heavy blogging discussions... and basically the definition we use for a friend here is a anybody blogging from Germany, right ?

Hope we can make it all work together !

Could you recommend a hotel in Düsseldorf with wi-fi or DSL and possibly a restaurant where we could meet ? Thanks ! -Loic

I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in the Harbour: http://marriott.com/property/propertyPage.mi?marshaCode=DUSHF Speditionstr. 11 Duesseldorf, 40221 Germany, Phone: 49 211-49390 Fax: 49 211-49392000 It has fast Wifi in the bar downstairs, or had at least half a year ago. - [WWW]Oliver

You'll find a list of wifi enabled hotels [WWW]here. [WWW]Mario

For the dinner I suggest the "Schwan" in the harbour quarter [WWW]Map Let's say at 21:00 h? I'll reserve a table as soon we can overview how many bloggers will be there. So everyone: press 'edit' and enter your name. [WWW]Mario

Thanks Mario, let's all meet at 9PM at the "Schwan" ! I will be back from Gutersloh so I expect not to be able to do 8PM (sorry) -Loic

There is a table booked on the name Sixtus for 12-15 people from 21:00h. So, if anyone decides spontaneously to join us, there should be enough chairs. In the case we are more than 15 we can simply play "Journey to Jerusalem" =8-)

Friday, March 12, Dusseldorf in the day, to be confirmed

Friday night back home, exhausted but happy :=p Thank all for your interest
