GUADEC 2005/Stuttgart building

Yesterday I took the train to Stuttgart to meet Tim Ney and take a tour around the Haus der Wirtschaft, where GUADEC 2005 will take place in May, with Hanno Wagner and Joerg Hoh (local open source enthusiasts who also helped with the KDE aKademy), and Christina Wolf from Baden-Würtenberg Connected.

The building is a dedicated conference centere, very big and well maintained, ideal not only for all us hackers, but also as a way to present GNOME to new users. The only major problem is the lack of networking, but after meeting Hanno and Joerg, and talking about their plan, I feel very confident that they can deal with that.
