Wikimania 2007 Taipei :: a Globe in Accord

Frankfurt was filled with fascinating interactions. Broadly speaking, I found that Wikimanians polarise along the continuum of sociability. A substantial number were uncomfortable in conversation; manifesting this as shyness or belligerence. Even so, the group was, individually and collectively, far more interesting than most social groups. For me the main benefit of attendance was the pleasure of conversation. Although I found most of the presentations interesting, even these yielded their main value in the conversations that they inspired.
