Merci, Andre! 

How about an article about some of your projects some day for TLS?

And is there a way you can encourage the Europeans to contribute articles as
I know there are many projects going on, new ideas and techniques and so on
that could be shared with TLS readers worldwide.

The new blog (tls.buildearth.org) has a translator with many languages so
that the text of selected articles that are posted to the blog can be
highlighted and, after clicking on the flag of the nation/language, can be
translated for reading online.

So I hope this will encourage Europeans and others around the world to
subscribe to TLS - the pdf format is easily available online, has color
photos when available (it makes a great deal of difference), can be
downloaded to computer or CD or DVD for their personal use, can be printed
for personal use - pages, articles or the whole issue, and is searchable on
keyword. Costs only $6 USD per issue.

>>> Hello GSBN members,
>>> European SB Conference - 2009
>>> We had our european gathering in Belgium early september. Needless to
>>> say that we all had lots of fun, that we learned a lot, that we made new
>>> friends AND that we had some nice Belgium beers. We have not yet decided
>>> on the location of the next European gathering; a group* has been formed
>>> to decide on that, and to support those who will take on that chalenge.
>>> We want the next european gathering to be in 2011. We'll keep you up to

>>> Andre de Bouter
>>> International SB Conference 2010?
>>> This brings me to the organizing of the ISBC. Remember that we talked
>>> about about a proposal from Colorado, a second from the UK and the
>>> suggestion to do it in a 'developing' country? I'm a bit scared of
>>> opening up this can of worms, but time flies and 2010 is on our doorstep.
>>> I suggest that any country that is interested sents makes a proposal and
>>> that we discuss it on the GSBN for a little while. Than we (the GSBN
>>> members) can all vote via Doodle (a very easy to use google voting
>>> tool). I'm all open to any other suggestion on how to make a choice, but
>>> I would like to avoid reading hundreds of long emails on the subject.
>>> Personally I don't care where it is, or how it is organized; as long as
>>> it IS organized.
>>> Andre - lets get together - de Bouter
>>> France
>>> PS David Eisenberg (our special guest in Belgium) was brilliant, and our
>>> hosts very sweet.
