On October 26, 2006, the Wikimania Team members in Taipei met to report and discuss the preparation work for Wikimania 2007. In retrospect, Taipei started working on its bid for Wikimania 2007 on August 16, and it was shortlisted on September 15. On September 25, the Wikimania 2007 jury announced that Taipei was chosen as the host city for Wikimania 2007. More than two months have passed since Taipei started its bidding, and there are only 280 days left before the opening of Wikimania 2007 Taipei. Here are the minutes of this meeting:

  • Andrew Lih was appointed by the Board of Wikimedia Foundation as its liaison person for Wikimania 2007 Team in Taipei.
  • The Team has successfully recruited Daucter as the site manager for the conference venue.
