I'll be there! I missed last year's mini (micro?) meet because I went straight to the "Evening with S60".

So what's this Ovi thing afterwards? Is it press only or can mere mortals join in too?

Indeed. I'm sorry to see you guys got hacked. There's some really sad people out there. Damn script-kiddie scumbags.

Vote for your favourite new Mobbler logo

Mobbler (http://code.google.com/p/mobbler/) wants its own logo/icon since so far it's been borrowing the Last.fm logo. Based on some discussions with the main developer, I've produced two alternative...
