The Wikimania Organizing Team Blog

Non-stop Rainy Days, 20 Mar 2007

The weather in Taipei are really bad recent days. Almost every team members here catches cold by turns. It is also difficult for us to meet in the cold rainy weather. There are 134 days to Wikimania. Hope everyone healthy.

CfP Is Coming, 1 Mar 2007

Here it is: http://wikimania2007.wikimedia.org/wiki/Call_for_Participation

Thanks to Jakob, Phoebe, Angela and others, such a great work! Oops, it looks like I'm late (again) on hacking days planning...

Shall I add a "call for hacking days proposal" into CfP or not? I will figure it out in the meeting, today.

Party Venue, 25 Feb 2007

In January, we ordered Red Theater to be the Wikimania Party venue. It was a theater with more than 90 years history. The building is constructed with 8 edges, with 2 floors on the ground. Nowadays there are several shops selling little souvenirs at the first floor, and the 2nd floor is a big tea house. It has a stage that we can announce things on it, and there's a big screen beside it. I have talked with a documentary director, Nic Hill who is filming "Truth in Numbers: The Wikipedia Story" and visited Taipei several days ago. I invited him to play his movie in the Wikimania Party and he has agreed. It is really coincidental that we reserved a theater to be the party venue. --Theodoranian 17:29, 25 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Happy Chinese New Year, 18 Feb 2007

Happy Chinese New Year!

My new year wish of wikimania is, for Hacking Days, constantly contributing one hour of my spare time a day!

Also thanks to Jidanni here: he helps me find out a typo on both Team_and_Volunteers#Hacking_Days and Planning/Hacking_days -- "Taiwa'i'n" in the URL of "local code jam a.k.a. hackathon" should be Taiwan :p

BTW, the local code jam for concept proof of the hacking days, is almost settled down for the place: Nan-Hai Gallery.
