🇩🇪 🇬🇧 15. Mai 2024 | MeetFairbuds 🎧 Fairphone Community Aachen

Ich habe es mal in meinen FP Kalender eingetragen:=)

Ich bin auch dabei. Habe mir den Tag freigenommen und werde wohl bereits ab Mittag bzw. frühen Nachmittag die Zeit in Aachen verbringen.

Als FB-Verweigerer kann ich mich natürlich nicht beim verlinkten Event eintragen :wink:


Danke für die Rückmeldung! :slight_smile: Wenn Ralf es schafft, könnten wir diesmal acht werden.


A truly nice evening – just as if it had been “the first time” :wink: all over again. It was an almost 50/50 group – five FP1s & four FP2s (and four :woman: and five :man:, too :wink: )

Thanks to all who had pledged to come (they turned up without exception :thumbsup: ) and our bonus guests :smile:

Hat tip back to @Stefan and the Vienna Gang!

Nach einem kleinen Sommerschlaf findet der nächste und damit
4. Aachener Fairphone-Stammtisch nun statt am

Mittwoch, 2. November um 19:00 Uhr wieder im Restaurant Insel Rhodos, Jakobstraße 99-101

Weiterhin freuen wir uns über alle Interessierten – egal, ob schon “versorgt” mit
einem Fairphone 1 oder 2, gerade noch ungeduldigend wartend oder auch noch
gänzlich unentschieden und einfach nur neugierig! Herzlich willkommen!

Heute Abend! :slight_smile: Tonight!

Special Guest: Das Community Fairphone 2 :iphone:CFP2

:gb: Meet up! :smile:

After a little hibernation, our next and thus 4th Aachen Fairphone meet-up will take place at the same venue as before on

Wednesday, 02 November 2016 at 7 pm
at Restaurant Insel Rhodos, Jakobstraße 99-101
(150 metres to the east from Aachen-Schanz train station)

We are looking forward to meet you regardless of whether you already
own a Fairphone 1 or a Fairphone 2, are waiting impatiently for your FP2 or are still
undecided and/or just curious! Welcome!

Facebook Event (registration purely optional)



I think we can claim that Aachen Fairphoners’ 4th meeting was quite a success, totalling a completely unexpected 13 attendants – 6 of these not Fairphone owners (yet) and all curious about the FP2. The CFP2 proved the perfect fit for that set, allowing the newbies to get the best possible first hand experience. At the same time, our group of experienced FP2 owners was able to answer all questions and also generously helped me out time and again when I kept failing to enumerate the complete set of all fairtraded conflict minerals in the FP2 :wink:

All those attending who did not own a Fairphone clearly confirmed that it was the newspaper announcement (see above) that made them aware of the meeting and turn up. Let me specify that unlike before our previous three meetings, the announcement had appeared in the paper relatively long in advance (14 October 2016); our previous meetings had seen the announcement published just 1-2 days in advance.

The meeting only completely dissolved after almost three hours, with the first participants having arrived even before the host :innocent:

To be continued!

:gb: To get in touch with Aachen Fairphoners, feel free to message me here.
:de: Wer Kontakt mit uns aufnehmen möchte, kann sich hier bei mir melden.


Hey awesome Aachen Fairphoners, I’d love to see some Aacheners at efct17 ! :smiley: Feel warmly invited! It would be great if you discussed this at your next meetup. :slight_smile:

:de: Ich schlage ein neues Treffen in der zweiten Monatshälfte oder der ersten Februarhälfte vor (nur Narren würde einen späteren Termin wählen … :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:). Wenn DU dich uns noch neu anschließen möchtest und noch keinen Link zur Terminabstimmung bekommen hast, schick’ mir einfach eine private Nachricht, damit ich Dir den Abstimmungslink so schnell wie möglich zukommen lassen kann. :slight_smile:

:gb: I’m eyeing a new meeting on an evening in the second half of this month or the first half of February (in Aachen, you better schedule things like these well ahead of Karneval … :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:). If YOU want to join us and haven’t received the scheduling vote link by now, just send me a private message so I can send you the link as well. :slight_smile:

Our fifth get-together proved a slower starter than before, but eventually totalled 11 attendees who were temporarily joined by two curious other restaurant guests who could not resist to ask what we were all about and let us explain some basics about the world’s first modular smartphone. Aachen Fairphoners were joined tonight by Bennett who currently interviews Fairphoners for his ethnology master thesis at the University of Heidelberg. Two of us had actually taken the journey from the rivers of Rhein and Ruhr just for the fun of meeting other Fairphoners.

Talk and questions ranged from operating systems Fairphone OS, Open OS, Ubuntu and Sailfish to good old trouble-shooting with FP1s (tasty for archeologists: a non-unified storage layout First Edition FP1 …) and FP2s (the wonder of proximity sensor calibration), some Fairphone module LEGO playing with the CFP2 to speculation about the pros and cons of regular and slim cases (present: white, turquoise and red). In the end, the bulk of us had spent over three hours together and I think most were looking forward to staying in touch and/or convening again in 2-3 months. The only sad note was that it was the last Aachener Fairphone-Stammtisch attended by our materials expert from Switzerland Johannes who is about to move to Carinthia (Austria).

Thanks to everyone who turned up, to @Douwe for working hard to let us borrow the CFP2 once again and especially to @JohannesG for re-motivating me last year to resume the Aachen Fairphoners meetings!


Wow, great to hear about the vibrant Aachen community! :smiley:

Haha, didn’t know that @JohannesG was actually active in Aachen! (We met at #efct16 .) There are several Carinthians in the #austrianfairphoners topic! Maybe there will soon be another Austrian community!? :wink:

Thank you @urs_lesse for the as always perfect organisation of the meet-up. Its great to see the interest in the fairphone project and that everybody finds answers to his/her questions. Hope to see you all soon again :slight_smile:


Nice! Looks like you guys had a good meetup! I’d be really curious to hear more about Bennets research and keep us informed about when the next meetup will take place.
