Re: Some Finnish thoughts of Guadec+aKademy 2009

Questions to ask are
(1) where is Free Software in most need of support?

The community-building card has been the defining factor for France vs
UK for example.  But I didn't expect to see it played by Finland or
Spain bids, given how integrated Nokia and Igalia are in the GNOME
ecosystem.  Gran Canaria on the other hand... ;).

Although Nokia is an active player, we got to remember that it is not the whole community even here. 

There are signals that  there is a new generation of hackers growing in the universities etc at the moment, and currently they often have no direct connections with the corporate world, Nokia or others. For them this event would be a great opportunity to get involved in the community.  And vice versa; New blood, new drive!
