Mike's an interesting guy to talk to. Plenty of drive too: He flew in the night before. Then he flew 03:00 that night to Helsinki for a meet & greet today! And this is his schedule, something he set up for himself.

Yeah, we'd really love to get it more south again, but so far we've failed to find an organizer there. We've been asking for this every year since 2014 when it was at Tampere... but no volunteers, so we've made it ourselves here in north then. It'd just need one local organizer to keep count of things little and check the venues etc which we can't do remotely, and we'd give proper remote support and help otherwise. Although this year's event brought some hope for getting it organized elsewhere finally, we'll see how it progresses... it'd be in Jyväskylä, which would be a fresh area for us, and could be nice in that way
