There *will* be a conference in Copenhagen this summer
The news is out, there will be no Reboot this year - so we have an obligation to re-Ersatz. Having said that; I've come to the personal conclusion that the Ersatz of the last two years had a bad effort/attendance ratio. I'd like Ersatz this year to maybe be a little less involved, but to make sense for more people.
Maybe a one day event instead of a two-day event
Maybe consider bonfire + marshmallows + conversation the core of Ersatz and do just that and then add a little conversation before and after
An alternative, I think could really work: Rent Høkeren for a day, and do an "Internet bar with talks in the back room" style event; that might draw out a bigger crowd and keep the tone light.
But that's just me. I'm pretty sure I'm not organizing a two-day return to our previous camp grounds but I'm open to suggestions for what we could do. Pipe in in the comments.
