I'd love to come, but a week's notice is impossible - I need a couple of months heads-up to get it in the diary - next time, maybe...

Pete.
well, so far it looks like it will be the friday, but i did originally propose either friday or saturday... no-one has said they prefer saturday so far, so i think it will be friday.

seriously, you can't fit it in your schedule with a FULL WEEK's notice ??? what about the eurostar ? it's only a few hours away ! (unless of course the train breaks down in the tunnel again and you're stranded for 12 hours).

Thanks Pete, of course you are right! It's Friday, July 18th. Before, the 19th was also being considered, and somehow the date was still on my mind.

More heads-up time in the future, promised.

(of course, i won't tell you that the only reason i want to organise this is purely self-interested... i just cannot wait any longer to see e-ink in person. and besides whatever different liseuses will accompany the MR members, tebaldo works on e-ink projects and has many prototypes to show off...)
Have you contacted the Booken folks? They may not be MR readers, but they'd certainly be appropriate people to have present.

I have no idea. But you won't know unless you ask.

And they're in Paris, so getting there shouldn't present a huge challenge for them.

friday 7 pm

hadrien says friday 7 pm is a good time for him. so far no cries of outrage, so let's just stick to that.

hadrien also says he knows the people from bookeen, and i should go ahead and invite them, and he doesn't know the people from mobipocket personally but why not.

so i guess tomorrow, i'm going to invite bookeen and mobipocket out for a drink.

crikey.
