"For a Wikipedian"? I presume you meant to say "for a Wikipedian in
Europe". There are plenty of contributors in other parts of the world,
including an emergent community across Asia for whom Taipei is a
highly accessible location.

It's expensive both ways to travel long distances, remember, so
choosing location based on population is a surefire way to guarantee
that huge numbers of Wikimedians will never attend a Wikimania.
