Wikimania 2006[edit]

In the course of informal discussions at Wikimania in Frankfurt the possibility of having Wikimania 2006 in Vancouver was raised. What makes Canada desirable for such a meeting is the capacity to draw delegates from the United States. For many overseas delegates, however, U.S. visa requirements make that country less attractive. All else being equal, Europeans see Vancouver as a more interesting Canadian city to visit than Toronto, the only other Canadian city to receive significant consideration.

Preliminary bids from various cities need to be made by Sept. 30, 2005. A short list will be drawn from those bids. Is there enough interest and energy to put together such a conference in Vancouver for August 2006? The people in Frankfurt put on a tremendous gathering, with a core organizational group of about a dozen people. Some 400 people attended from 52 different countries.

I expect that a North American Wikimania could be a little smaller, but we would still need a suitable facility. It would be good to know that such a facility is available for a conference; the type of youth hostel facility that was used in Frankfurt does not exist in North America. What would be the cost of hosting such a conference at UBC?

I'm looking for interest and commitment. To that end I am proposing a Vancouver meetup for Saturday, Sept. 24. If someone has a reasonably accesible place for such a meeting please let me know. (I live in Richmond, but something in the city of Vancouver would be more appropriate.)

I am spammiong this to all Vancouver area Wikipedians that I can find. Please reply to my talk page. Eclecticology 21:50:16, 2005-09-03 (UTC)

Authorship[edit]

Thanks for bring up the issue of authorship at my talk page. I addressed this on my website. Did you co-found uncyclopedia? Wow. You know, I found uncyclopedia highly entertaining and added a few articles in it myself to amuse my friends :) Fred Hsu 18:04, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Glad to know you like Uncyc, even though I'm not active there anymore these days. Cheers. :D --Euniana/Talk/Blog 19:38, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

This discussion prompted me to actually register at Uncyc, before some other Fred Hsu come alone and take the user name I normall use. So, I got myself registered in the English site. But the Chinese site seems a bit screwed up; the registration page asks one to type in the code word 'supposedly' displayed in an image file. But the image file isn't there on the server apparently, so no image shows up. If you know people to notify about this problem, please do. Otherwise, I'll find a way to bring this to admin's attention. Fred Hsu 20:31, 23 September 2006 (UTC)
