Hi Myriam

I could be the representative for the BBW Winterthur - this is not a  
university, but still a quite big Berufbuildungsschule of the canton  
Zurich  -which I attend...

regarding the switzerland-wide meeting - what about if we do that  
planned enough ahead together with gnupingu?

I think with that we reach some people...

I think we could even do that in Fribourgh...then the travel is not  
that far for you.... Love to visit that town again anyway ;)
