talking about journalists... it might be good to
consider telling the local
teams (or at least the winning team) some time in advance before making the
decision public, to enable them to prepare a proper (joint) press release
from the chapter and/or the wmf. I know this is not very ideal towards the
community, but this might be an advantage to catch attention, and to reach
out that way.
Yes. I suggest to tell all the teams representatives the final
decission before it will be officially announced. Maybe it is even
more important for those two who won't be happy to have Wikimania in
2010, as there might be plenty of unnecesary frustration after being
informed about it via press.
