When Corsin and I started organizing BarCampZurich last year, we had lofty ambitions: I remember sitting in an organizers’ meeting in a basement in Chur, Switzerland, explaining to a room of skeptics that we’ll have 50 or more attendees. It worked out pretty well, though: Almost 100 people showed up. (Here's a summary of how BarCampZurich worked out.)

When I heard that Dominik Tarolli et al. are setting up BlogCampSwitzerland - an unconference for European bloggers - I was on the side of the skeptics: "They’ll have 50 bloggers, maybe," I thought. So far, they have more than 150 signups!

I hope the European blogger crowd will be as interesting as the roomful of geeks who met last October. I’ll try to be there and may even host a discussion.
