Here is a brief report from Stockholm:
The 6th of November Michael Albert visited Stockholm, Sweden as part of his tour through northern Europe, where he gave a talk titled “IOPS – a new organization for a self managed society” at a café in Old Town. About 50 people attended and it was a mixed audience in terms of age, background, etc. which showed a lot of interest, asked questions and participated actively in the discussion. People could sign up for a second contact and many did. The response to this second contact has this far been limited, though. IOPS Sweden has gotten a handful new members presumably as a result of the event but maybe more significant, the planning of the event brought together a small group of organizers that plans to continue the efforts to initiate an active Stockholm chapter.
