Danish FIRE meetups March 2019 (Copenhagen and Aarhus)

There are two meetups being arranged by the FIREdanmark group on facebook. One is in Copenhagen (3/8) and the other will likely be in Aarhus (3/15).

I'll be attending both of them. Other participants from the Hamsterhjulet documentary will also be there.

I was considering holding a specific ERE meetup, but I won't be able to arrange and host anything and I don't know how many would show up and where, so I figure it's easier just to be a part of the FIRE meetups.

The Danish ERE community got a meetup coming up on the 9th of Feb, but there was talk of an extra meetup now that you're in DK.

@FBeyer - sorry for total offtopic but what % of the Danish ERE community is active on this forum? Was wondering how many 'silent ERErs' there are (my guess it's vast majority).

Edit - this question doesn't make much sense since you can only tell % of active community members, but would not know how many 'silent lone wolfs' there are.

Wonder if an educated guess can be made somehow from the number of books sold?

I can't answer that because:
1) I don't know how many ERE adherents there are, only how many I've met personally
2) What constitutes an ERE adherent? Someone who wants to be FI/leanFIRE or someone who aspires towards Jacob's philosophy as outlined in the book?
3) How often should you post to count as active on these forums?

The 'secret society' has 27 members, but I know a few more who aspire towards the ERE philosophy without joining our local community.


So... I don't have an answer for you. Sorry :)

got super excited at first. but then realized that going to Danish meeting... without knowing Danish isn't the best idea. adding fact that I got empty brain after 15 min talk with new people. hmm.

will anyone else come from Germany/Sweden or whatever place?

@Jacob - Do you know if the Aarhus meeting is still up or has it been cancelled?

I wouldn't mind arranging the meetup in Aarhus, but unfortunately I work nightshifts that weekend and will have to leave early before we finish.

I'll see if I can make it to CPH. then.
