Hi Renee,
Love the pics - even more happy to be going now.
What a shame you wont be there. The train is expensive and long though! 
I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi Ruth,

I wish I could go this year, but I'm broke beyond broke ;-)  De Geuzen
participated in the last Eclectic Tech Carnival in Amsterdam, and it was
fantastic to be there... Here are a few pics:

happy travels to Istanbul!  And looking forward to reading your report
on the event.

 xx Renee
