Isn't it great when things happens at a quick pace? Just this week I got to know about Web Montag (Web Monday) which is a very web 2.0, grass-roots casual series of presentation & mingle events.
Anyone can host a Web Monday, and anyone can participate. It's built upon a "speakers corner" kind of ideal; You contact tho host of the event and get you ten minute presentation, and then there's some kind of main event from some company, or just some person who's got an interesting project.
I've been lucky enough to get my employer to sponsor Beer, Pizza and WiFi for the occasion, as well as somewhere to be, so I basically just have to host, meet nice people and have a great time. Yes, do some speaking and waving at screens as well, but that's just fun anyway.
Due to the fact that my wife rides on Mondays, I had to put the event the first _tuesday_ in every month instead. Web Monday on a Tuesday, no less :)
This first event, the 5th of February will focus on Dojo, Thin-server technology and the newly released Ajax server Jaxer, from Aptana, which I'll do an hour-long piece on.
If you live in, or know that you'll be in Sweden the 5th, and want to go to the event, add your name to the Wiki page; http://webmontag.de/doku.php?id=stockholm_sweden So I know how many beer to ask for.
Se you there,
