Ola, our lead fonero in Sweden organized a great event/party for Fon in Stockholm. The co organizers of this party where OpenBC and Skype. The pictures are here. The party itself was great and there were around 700 people there but one thing deserves special mention. I was very happy to be there with Skype and OpenBC, two of the best European internet companies. As we know most of the internet developments are done in Silicon Valley. While that lead will probably stay there for many years to come it is great to see also that we can build technology/internet companies in Europe. When I was at Columbia University in New York City the Europeans and Latin Americans used to work in teams while the Americans would be more inclined to work alone. I hope that now that the internet is mostly about communities that we continue our collaborative spirit over here and while competing we can help each other enough to succeed.
