I enjoyed going to both wikimania conferences as an outsider. Getting to know you and all of your ideas was an incredible experience. This year promises to be even more special for me as I am now much more involved with all the wikimedia projects due to my board membership. I hope that having this conference in yet another continent will ensure that new people are able to attend this year! My special interest goes out to all educational projects and wikiversity/wikibooks.
So I am flying there in a few days, looking forward to seeing you all :)
