Dude second you!
It's hard though it's like stopping 2 days full-time ( 2 days + weekend =
real summit) of bunch of employees from nokia and their partners and Intel
their partners. Not like they are obliged to go but commited or something
you know, and even more give them this trip, but what a real summit would
be, wouldn't it?
How about Nokia and Intel provides at least one of the alien's list above?*

Qt is cute and Norway is awesome, how about that?
