Summary of previous meetups[edit]

  • Manila 3 - held on October 21, 2007 in Starbucks in The Podium, Ortigas, Pasig City (near SM Megamall). This served as a dialogue with Tin Mandigma of Read or Die Philippines about her organization's success and how it would apply to Wikimedia Philippines.
  • Manila 4 - held on July 19, 2008 in Figaro and Super Bowl of China in SM Mall of Asia. It was supposed to be called as First Wikipedia Tambayan Gimik, but it turned out to be an actual meetup between English, Tagalog and Kapampangan Wikipedia contributors.
