We also had a 90min discussion with two persons from "Chaos macht Schule",
which is a CCC subproject. where CCC people go to schools and talk about 
data privacy, computer & net security and such subjects. As we both deal
with pupils, teachers & parents, but from different perspectives, this was 
quite interesting.

We also had a small Cheese & Wine party, with some cheese from Spain and
one of the very last bottles of Debian wine from DebConf9 in Extremadura! 
You've missed a great event :-D


Many thanks to the CCC Hamburg for letting us use the attraktor hackerspace!
