What’s this DreamHack thing?

DreamHack is no ordinary event. It started back in 1994 when 40 friends gathered to hack and play and have fun. Today it holds the the world record for the world’s largest LAN party and computer festival. The major events take place twice a year, spanning 4 days, last time over 20 thousand visitors showed up and over 1.6 million followed the matches online.

  1. A late comment:
    These vouchers should become a part of Flattr’s default portfolio. Not only as gift voucher codes worth 1 Flattr that can be generated by any user, but also as special arrangement for events like the one mentioned here.
    What you need is:
    1. The organizer gives out vouchers that charge the recipients’ accounts with some funds to flattr. (Expenses can be covered for example from entrance fee and each ticket has a voucher code.)
    2. Flattrs from these particular vouchers can only be used within that particular event. This, of course, creates a very closed group but it makes this arrangement useful for events where the audience gives out votes for awards.
    The benefit for Flattr would be the increased number of users, plus PR. Organizers wouldn’t have to wrack their brains about the amount of prizes, they simple let the audience decide by Flattrs.

  2. I absolutely agree with at Chris and I’m also eagerly awaiting the ability to send people a flattr or two perhaps via email notification.

    cheers,
