The foaf+ssl world tour

As you can see from the map here I have been cycling from Fontainebleau to Vienna (covering close to 1000km of road), and now around Cyprus in my spare time. On different occasions along my journey I had the occasion to present foaf+ssl and combine it with a hands on session, where members of the audience were encouraged to create their own foaf file and certificates, and also start looking into what it takes to develop foaf+ssl enabled services. This seems like a very good way to proceed: it helps people get some hands on experience which they can then hopefully pass on to others, it helps me prioritize what need to be done next, and should also lead to the development of foaf+ssl services that will increase the network value of the community, creating I hope a viral effect.

I started this cycle tour in order to loose some weight. I still have 10kg to loose or so, which at the rate of 3kg per 1000km will require me to cycle another 3000km. So that should enable me to visit quite a few places yet. I will be flying back to Vienna where I will stay 10 days or so, after which I will cycle to Prague for a Kiwi meeting on the 3rd of July. After that I could cycle on to Berlin. But really it's up to you to decide. If you know a good hacker group that I can present to and cycle to, let me know, and I'll see how I can fit it into my timetable. So please get in contact! :-)

Well, if you want to come cycling in Ireland, you'd be welcome to present your FOAF-SSL work in DERI !

I'm sure if you pass through Amsterdam you can replenish some of those lost calories! Will you track your plans in Dopplr or similar site?

Yep, I need to find a tool to track where I am going that is easy to use...

Going to Holland would be a good idea after Berlin. Then from that up to the UK, and Ireland, would be good too. I am thinking I could perhaps somehow get up to the Nordic country where I have the feeling most hackers seem to live. :-) I'd need to get there during the summer though....

Ok, so the first such meeting will be at Vienna University on Thursday June 16 from 11am to 12:30 in the Karlplatz Seminarraum 8 http://tr.im/oGFP .

Organising meetings now for Prague where I'll be beginning of July.
