Hello,

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We’ve modified
the site so that it no longer shows any references to Serbia on the
pages that relate to Kosovo and Pristina – for example:

http://lanyrd.com/places/kosovo/past/
http://lanyrd.com/2011/redo-design-conference/

Our places features use GeoPlanet, a location database maintained by
Yahoo, and it was that database which listed Pristina as being inside
Serbia. You can read more about the database we are using here:

Thanks again for letting us know about the problem.
