I'd like to say thank you to Hsiang-Tai Chien for his civility and that I
hope we'll do a fabulous Wikimania 2007 in Taipei.
One of the specific request I will have (which is basically the same that
the one of the past two years) is that we try to find funds to help
wikipedians to come from all over the world. We need to start looking for
such funds as soon as possible. And make this event a bridge between

HT> Thanks, and personally I will join the discussion and the organization
for Wikimania 2007 in the mail lists and also in the Taipei team more
actively. For the fund issue we are discussing with the sponsors now. And we
will need to co-work with the Foundation on this issue.


I'd like to ask HT if all the chinese wikimania core team could join the 
wikimania mailing list, even though it may be that some of you discuss 
issues in chinese only. It is important (imho) that at least some non 
chinese be involved in the organisation, as it will greatly enrich the 

HT> Some of members in the Taipei team already joined the Wikimania-l and
Wikimedia-l mailing lists. For example, you can see Theodoranian (as THD),
ROC and myself in this mailing list, and we also joined Wikimania-l since
the bidding result is out. And we will ask more members to join the
Wikimania-l for discussion. We welcome any non Chinese people to join us and
we would be very open for opinions and ideas because Wikimania 2007 is not
just a event for Taipei, it's a event for all Wikipedians over the world. We
understand that the bidding result might let some people down but we still
welcome them to provide ideas to us for this event sincerely.

HT> Also we are now trying to create a wiki server in Taipei so people from
other regions can know the status for the organization process immediately.
The domain address for the server is now been registered and the server
should be online soon. Once it's online I will send the notice to

Also, I would like that all core organisers provide a little bit more 
information about them, and that the role of each be defined as much as 
possible. This will help identify areas where help is missing. And this 
will help us identify who the Foundation should be in touch with for 
various issues (for example, the Foundation (Michael) MUST be in contact 
with the budget person).


HT> Yes, I will provide a rough member list now:

Project manager: Theodoranian (wp:zh:User:Theodoranian)
PR and Sponsorship: KJ (wp:zh:User:KaurJmeb) and Francis Huang (member from
Sinica Taiwan)
Contact people: Hsiang-Tai (wp:en:User:Htchien) and ROC (wp:zh:User:Roc)
Website: Alex S. H. (wp:zh:User:Alexsh), Little BTC (wp:zh:User:Littlebtc)
and GLWu
China affairs: Mingwangx (wp:zh:User:Mingwangx) and Chiao-Ching (member from
the sponsor)
Agenda: Theodoranian, Tsu-Chiang Liou (member from Sinica Taiwan) and KJ

For financial and administrative person, we are still looking for some ideal

And we need the contact people in the Foundation so we can discuss and
co-work with WMF. Please advise whom we can contact with.

Thanks and best regards,
