CCP is a multinational corporation, but our home and passion will always be Iceland. CCP Hellmar's newest dev blog shares how we are all inspired by the land of fire and ice.

Once out in 0.0 I met a guy from Iceland and he started talking to me in danish after he found out that it was my mother tongue. I never knew before that people in Iceland learn danish in school, so that day EVE taught me that.

I want to got to Iceland one day. Perhaps now would be good?

It's an amazing, gorgeous country filled with wonderful people. Cheers for the nice blog entry and the link to the new site.

So ... CCP's PR team is now working for the Icelandic government, too? Is CCP a registered political party yet? Very Happy

As soon as I get my passport, I'm heading to Iceland, and will continue to do so for Fanfest as long as I can afford it.


...running 3 EVE accounts probably isn't helping that venture.

Nicely done CCP

Hilmar should also have mentioned all the Nordic names that the Minmatar ships have. Even though Iceland took up Christianity shortly after its settlement the names and myths still lived on for centuries

Bags packed, touching down in Keflavik in 36 hours! \o/

The marketing agency (whoever they are) has done a real good job with this, I'm impressed.

Heck, I would've wanted to go just to see the volcano! Talk about tourism, that would be an awesome spot.
I'd love to go to Iceland, looks fun and beautiful, and if nothing else I'd love to see the CCP studios... it's just the plane tickets are so daym expensive - $2000 US round trip from LAX =(.

We will hold the next Fanfest in March. See this news item.

I hope the modest contribution I will make to Iceland's tourism trade when I come for a fieldtrip next week will help. Irony is we are actually coming to study the igneous geology of Iceland and hope visit the march eruption site if conditions and time permits. Really looking forward to it, especially as I've never seen an erupting volcano despite first hand being a studying volcanologist.

I'm still thinking about going to Iceland this summer Cool

I'm into photography a lot, and there seem to be a 'few' good places for it...

Please start up a volcano or two before I get there... Razz

They really should have had Hilmar do the video rather than a scruffy red haired homeless guy who lost his razor. Inspiring people to go to Iceland is one thing, petty bribery via pity is quite another.

Can't wait for the next Fanfest!
Count me in guys!

I was inspired by Iceland since the first day I started playing Eve. Never been there, but that will change in near future. ;)

Btw, CCP Fallout? Any more news about Fanfest 2011? Not just yet?

<<so I wanted to make you all aware of this effort so that the 340,000 strong EVE community could help the 320,000 person community in Iceland that helped create all of this back in the day.>>

340,000 hmmm... yes, I think I'll book a ticket for myself and my 3 alt accounts.

Iceland is beyond explanation, it is truly one of the most wonderful and amazing places on this little dot we call home. I would strongly encourage everyone to travel and see it, break away from the traveled path and check out what it offers to everyone who is willing to do so. Have fun… That is what Iceland is about.

Start here. Iceland Then hit the Hiking and outdoor sites… you can not go wrong! I think they have a link to a DVD about Iceland free of charge (I got one off of the interwebs) ... if I'm wrong.. sorry.. it's out there, go enjoy!!! you will not be sorry!!!
