Good :) Tonight, I get together with the other OSM-NL guys that helped  
write up the original proposal. I will discuss the hack-a-thon idea  
with them. After that I'll be in touch with NLNet. I hope to have some  
answers early next week. If it turns out good, then we can start to  
shape the plan further (people, goal, location,...)
