What is this about?

Thursday was in part chosen to avoid other activities like First Tuesday, but that one is dominantly a business network and this is to be by webheads for webheads, but also because Thursday is a fairly quiet night. The first Thursday is easier to remember than second or last Thursday in the month. The kafarna was picked for fulfilling the requirements (nice, open, fairly smoke free and cheap, central...) and all round fine place. However it does not have wireless connection.
Some talks will be in English, others will be in Czech or Slovak.
Opera Software in Prague helps organise this activity, but it isn't meant to be an Opera hagiography. You don't have to sell your soul to Opera, though if Tor or others from our Souls&Minds department should be in town, they might make an offer for it you don't want to refuse. This is meant to be an exchange of ideas, not a sales pitch.
The inspirations have been several, like Oslo Pils [beer] and Linux User Group, or when I was more involved with Web standards the face-to-face evening eating/drinking sessions that could be more productive than the committee meeting before them. A lot can be done by email, but some things are much more fun and interesting in person.
