Web Wednesday Launches in Sweden

Mikael Ohren, a former student at Hong Kong University and regular attendant of our early social mixers in Hong Kong, has taken the brave step of launching a Web Wednesday community in Halmstad, Sweden. Our first step onto European territory!

With a population of 80,000 people or so, Halmstad presented a challenge for Mikael to drum up interest. But, he's making the right moves with a website in Swedish - - and a Facebook Group (only 19 members so far!).

Mikael has set himself on course to be a successful Internet entrepreneur; his first business is a marketplace for models and photographers, called "Modellbilder", and the second one helps people to laucnch a website in less than 24 hours ("hemsida24").

The second Web Wednesday in Sweden will be held on 4th March. If you're in the area (haha!) do drop by.
