The meeting is a chance for the Wikimania bid jury and the public to
ask questions of the bidders.
The meeting will be held in IRC on the Freenode network, channel #wikimania.
The meeting will be moderated and the jurors will have first chance to
ask questions. Bidding cities will have the chance to make a short
presentation about their city. Followup questions can be asked and
answered on the bid talk pages.
If you wish to ask a question but can't make the meeting, please leave
it on the talk page of the relevant bid:
and we will get to it as there is time. Logs of the meeting will be published.
Any questions? Let me know!
