If those involved in the Oxford bid think it's viable, then we have an
hour to create a page... I don't remember seeing much beyond idle
speculation. Did anyone actually look into the possibility of Oxford
hosting it?

There is a page, I thought, but it's unofficial.

I think someone has already contacted some University offices (OII?
Balliol?) but I'm not sure anymore.

Re: Fwd: [Foundation-l] Wikimania 2009 Bid Season update

In reply to this post by Tom Holden
Sorry about this guys. It seems we're all too disorganised to host Wikimania
anyway.

I was due to hear from the master of Balliol in the next week or so. (In
fact I was going to a dinner he'd be attending on Wednesday and was
intending to collar him then...)

I'd done quite a lot of work on the bid page, though obviously without
knowledge of how much Balliol could help us reduce costs it wasn't a
particularly convincing bid.

Unless we can persuade them to make an exception (seems unlikely) I guess
it's 2010 now, which has the minor drawback of being in theory after I will
have finished my DPhil so I might not be able to be as involved as I would
otherwise.

Tom
