I am zh:User:Theodoranian <http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Theodoranian>,
Wikimania 2007 organizer. The registration of Wikimania 2007 has been open
for near one month. Your enthusiastic participation will make this event
The 3rd edition of Wikimania is from Aug. 3 to Aug. 5 ,2007. We choose Chien
Tan Overseas Youth Activity Center (Taipei City, Taiwan) as the event venue.
Wikimedians from all over the world will get together to know each other, to
exchange opinions in this event. You can imagine that Wikimedia Projects
participators from more than 20 countries learning, conferencing, having
lunch, drinking, and chatting all together. You will meet those Wikimedians
you never met in real life, and you will find you are just like old friends.
This is really a good chance for global partners who share the same vision
and dreams to contact face-to-face. I think Wikimedians will know more about
the similarity and differences between each other via this event. I hope
Wikimania will help Wikimedians getting a closer connection, no matter among
Wikimedia Projects, or among nations/regions.
In this event, many scientists who research Wikimedia community will address
their fruitful results; many wiki technology developers will release their
new inventions; many important participators will share their experience
upon participating Wikimedia Projects. By attending this event, you may have
plentiful harvest on the internet hottest issues: Wiki-culture, wiki-tech,
and free access to knowledge.
Before the main conference, we will hold Hacking Days & Extra (Aug. 1 to
Aug. 2), and also Citizen Journalism Unconference (Aug.2). We will have a
big Wikimania Party in the evening of Aug. 4 at a historical heritage Red
Theater which is a tea-house now. In the party, we can drink beers,
cocktails, Taiwanese tea. Since Red Theater was a movie theater before, the
organizing team are trying to find some Wikimedia related films and will
play them in the Party. After the conference, we also arrange a friendly
tour agent which provides optional 1 to 3 days Taiwanese Cultural Tours
around the island.
Wikimania 2007 organizing team have devoted much time and efforts from last
September. We hope the first held-in-Asia Wikimania will be a good
experience for all attendees. Thanks for assistance from all over the world,
and thank for giving Taiwanese Wikimedians a chance to host. Please register
and come to Taipei to enjoy our hospitality. For more information please see
