With pleasure we announce the fifth BlogWalk meeting!

Date: November 11th (afternoon) and November 12th (whole day).
On Thursday November 11th, all BlogWalk participants are invited to join a seminar by Howard Rheingold, which starts at 15:00 at Umea University. Friday, November 12th will be spent with a BlogWalk meeting.

Place: Umea University, Sweden. Stephanie Hendrick kindly invited us to her hometown and university. She presented at the BlogTalk conference and took part in July’s BlogWalk in Vienna. Umea lies on the Botnian Gulf, 8hrs by car north of Stockholm. Flights from Stockholm fly regularly and will bring you to Umea in an hour. Also there is a night train. Umea is the site where in the 19th century Swedish troops last fought on Swedish soil (against Russian troops).

Theme: Blogging on the Move.
In spirit with the interests and publications of Howard Rheingold this BlogWalk will focus on mobility, and it’s meaning for far flung communities and networks.

As always both the Howard Rheingold seminar and the BlogWalk meeting are free of charge. A small contribution for coffee and refreshments probably will be asked.
BlogWalk meetings are by invitation only, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to be invited. (E-mail)

See you in Sweden? More info will soon be posted on the BlogWalk website. Preparations for the meeting can soon be found at the new BlogWalk wiki.
[Addendum]: Also if you know someone who you think might enjoy joining us, please let us know. Our aim is to bring a diverse and interesting group together, mixing familiar and new faces.
