A great party!

The foyer of Åbo Akademi had been turned into a beautiful venue for the conference dinner. Sol-Britt was the perfect hostess and master of ceremony. The evening started with songs and schnapps as any good party should. The Little green men quartet were a good competition to our singing, and probably were better too :) The editor in chief of Vasabladet (one of the sponsors of the conference) entertained us with a dramtically well-built speech about the past and the future of printed press, especially newspaper. After a very delicious dinner (during which we were reading sports results on mobile phones to follow the icehockey match between Finland and USA. And as we all know, Finland won!) it was time for dancing. Hasse Eriksson and his band were awesome and really got people moving on the dance floor. I'll post pictures and a fuller report of the evening a bit later.
