So, this is for the dev. team, what about making a DFLYBSD hackathon?

Some of us European developers want to meet near Liverpool this summer :) But frankly speaking an event like the Hackathon is _expensive_. Given that one half of the development team is on the European side, the other half on the American side and Yonetani in Japan, getting them all together is not a cheap thing. This doesn't include problems like vacations at all.

Last I checked, we were a virtual community, no? Can't something be setup "electronically" to pull together the various hackers?

EU developers already sound organized, with looking at meeting near Liverpool this summer ... who do we have NA based, and where? Is there a central location where all could 'meet and go online'? Or maybe setup two locations?

With all the various IMs, and webcams, and such, it shouldn't be too hard to make a 'virtual convention center', no? Provide lurkers with a "look, but don't speak" view on things, and have 'active hackers' register as non-lurkers ... ?
