There is a piece on the forthcoming airport strike in Iceland on 'The Mittani' blogsite. It does sound like the strike is going to be for a number of days and I get the feeling Icelandic people don't take any **** from their employers.

Anyone know what happened in Iceland with the decision to get further involved politically and/or economically with Europe? I found it amusing at the time as the populace seemed to be in favour of joining Europe whereas the Icelandic politicians seemed to be dead against it. The exact polar opposite of what has happened in most other countries where governments have cancelled referendums due to likely no votes and then undemocratically plunged themselves into the Europe debacle.

I just read the schedule. Looks like a better set of talks etc than last year if that is possible. I'm envious of you guys that are going this year. Sad Think I might buy the HD stream except that I will be working the Thursday, Friday, & Saturday so I wouldn't get to see much of it live I think. Grrrr.

So last year there was no wormhole-roundtable in the scredule, it was added later. The room turned out to be way too small, as there was about 150 of us present. I see that this year we have a wh-roundtable 1&2, but they are again in the small rooms.

Are they the same roundtable and you are hoping for less people to show up at once, or are they gonna be about different things and the rooms will be too small again?

I'm fearing that the mass limits are gonna be too small either way...


All of the repeating roundtables (Wormholes, Nullsec, Ship balancing) are going to be true repeats in the sense that we are providing two sessions so that different people can attend (since they are all such popular topics). That being said; roundtable discussions are driven by the attendees so they'll probably end up meandering in lots of directions, some of which will be repeated and some of which will not.

The Amarr and Jita rooms are the largest roundtable rooms available. Holding roundtables in the lecture halls never really works very well as it becomes very difficult to have an actual discussion in the cavernous spaces.


Any chance to get them recorded? Or maybe even transmitted on stream? But at least recorded and available on YT.



So, any chance to have panels, like wh panel, available on youtube after fanfest?

Like previously, none of the roundtable sessions will be recorded or published in any way.

Note that this time of year is littered with holidays here in Iceland, which means people haven't been at work for more than a couple of days since last blog went up.

Seriously, you guys seem to use that line a lot (or at least I've seen it used more more recently)

But I do have a question for you... what time of year isn't bad for Iceland Holidays... is there one?

I seem to be living in the wrong country...


Quit bitching!

I'm sure they have their own internal time tables, deadlines, and agendas. Sit back and wait, and quit acting like an impatient 4 year old.



I've got an 18 month old that would like to have a word with you and your definition of what it means to act like an impatient child.

I work in IT. People could give two ***** for any excuse you tell them, all they care about is making their "important thing" work (which is usually just needing to print out color pictures of their kidos on company ink)

In any case, there's a difference between acting like a chlid and noting that the same excuses for lack of planning and execution are getting old.

Not if your objective, like CCPs, is to encourage people to attend in person (and pay the entry fee).

I would feel bad for the attendees if the Airport Employees strike actually prevents people from attending, but I'd be thrilled for CCP to get some of their own medicine for once.

Lol, NO!

IIRC CCP sold all tickets to fanfest, so its not about their "business".

Also round-tables overlap so its not like You can attend all of them, but still You may want to know what was talked about on the ones You havent chosen to attend due to other events.

So CCP pls record it, even lo quality video would be better than nothing, as long as the voice is clear. Hell, even voice recording would be nice.

I dunno if you didn't notice, but we can't be in two places at once in this current universe....

Also not all of us have the means to travel to attend in person.... Hell even Comic Con recorded the major guest panels!

Is there going to be a post ahead of time to let us know what will be covered on EVE TV? Would be nice to know what will be available to watch before paying.


Yep, there should be another blog coming with EVE TV details.

Time is running out and I don't see it anywhere.
