Thanks Florence, Phoebe. It's always nice to hear we did a good job, it makes us all
I wanted to ask everyone to contribute to the feedback not only with prise, but also with
[constructive] critic. It will help us internally, and also the Wikimania 2010 organisers,
to learn from past mistakes.
We are also at complete disposition of the Polish team for what they might need, including
a self-review we are preparing.
We need to work together so that Wikimania will be every year better than the last one!
Thanks also to all the attendees; it was wonderful having you with us.

Indeed, what Florence & everyone
said -- this year's Wikimania was
fantastic. There were several details that especially
- the great swag; the book was my favorite part
- the welcome dinner and all the nice information for
- the tight moderation & room volunteer team, who kept
cracking along on schedule; this team of folks deserves
- simultaneous translation!!!
- videos of all the talks!!!!
- the great common areas
- coffee all the time :)
I also heard lots of praise for the conference program, and
city itself. I also know a lot of work got done, and
interesting conversations were had; I hope a lot of good
out of this year's conference.

out of past wikimanias; so I'd encourage everyone to post
feedback (let's start http://wikimania2009.wikimedia.org/wiki/Feedback
for survey-feedback, as well as
and if you're
interested, please help out with the planning for next year
conferences if you can.
Thanks again to an organized, dedicated and responsive team
the past 18 months working on this conference; your hard
definitely paid off.
