Scandanavia Tour

Jeff Beatty, Axel Hecht, and I are on a mini-Scandinavia tour / road-trip with the goals of strengthening our localization teams there and general community building.

Fosdem is held, during the first weekend of February, in Brussels (Belgium), a very nice city, with the best fries you could ever eat ;-)
