this sounds really really great. thanks matthias and frank for 
organising it, and kudos to zkm for their hospitality!

will we have public presentations for a non-expert audience, too ?
if so, i might do some "introductory audio engineering for beginners", 
and perhaps someone else with basic dsp knowledge would want to 
collaborate and tackle the dsp side of things...?
otherwise i'll just sit quietly and open-mouthed in a corner again, 
listen to the guys and have yet another time of my life :)

good idea. perhaps we can come up with some kind of poster that we can 
distribute to people and institutions that might be interested (martin 
"joey" schulze does it this way for the linuxtag, and since people put 
them only where geeks hang around, it is probably quite effective.)

this time we should try to organize video webcasts in addition to the 
audio streams, and of course an IRC feedback channel. after the fun we 
had last time, i'm volunteering again :)
