Thanks for the offer, it's an awesome idea! I'm forwarding this to our
mailing list so that everyone can take a look at the projects and
express interest, we'll also discuss this on our next meetup.
We are actually right now organizing what is essentially a "geekend"
with Metalab Vienna - visited them in December and in two weeks, they
are coming here. :-) So we might want to leave another few weeks of a
gap to "cool down" first ;) - we'll let you know during next week!
