I just wanted to let you all know that the bid to host Wikimania in 2015
has gone to Mexico
Although I am very sorry to hear that we were unsuccessful in our bid for
Cape Town to host the event we can seek comfort in knowing that we put
together a bid that has received a great deal of praise from everyone for
its high quality and high level of preparation. We had a great team working
on the bid and have done a good job of both building off of previous Cape
Town bids for the event and enhancing our potential for hosting a great
event for the day when we do get it.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for all the support you have given
I have no doubt that Mexico City will host a fantastic and truly memorable
event and wish them all the very best for the event. They have a good team
and the award could not have happened to a nicer group of people.
I would like to extend my most sincere congratulations to the winning team.
I look forward to attending the event in Mexico City, a part of the world
I have heard so much about and always wanted to visit.
Thanks and best regards,
Douglas Ian Scott
