Wikimania 2007 Thank You

phoebe ayers-3
I would like to say a huge thank-you to the Taipei team and organizers for
Wikimania 2007, which ended a few days ago. It was a fabulous conference and
you were incredible hosts. The venue and organization were all wonderful,
and the extra touches -- the banners leading to the venue, the Wikiball, the
free coffee, the t-shirts and tote bags for attendees, and much more -- made
it great. The conference was exciting and a pleasure to attend.

A special thanks to Theodoranian, the lead organizer; TzuChiang Liou, the
program manager; Daucter, Dann, Alice and all the registration staff;
Frances and KJ; James, the onsite volunteer coordinator, the rest of the
Taipei team, and the literally dozens of local volunteers who came to help
out. Thank you for your hospitality and for making the first Wikimania in
Asia a success. Thanks also to all the international volunteers who helped
with different aspects -- especially members of the program committee, the
scholarships committee, and the international sponsorships team. It was
great to work with all of you.

best,
phoebe

TzuChiang Liou
Thanks to all attendees, help from our community, foundation and most of
all, the fabulous colleagues in local team. Though it's a long list to
thanks to, I'd like to express my sincere thanks to all program
committee members, you done a lot to make this a great event:

* Phoebe: help me organize the program from the very beginning, thanks!!!
* Jakob: always giving great advise and did a excellent job in the whole
CFP, submission process.
* Andrew, JamesF and SJ make the Free Culture Space (wikimania lounge)
enjoyable and substantial, many attendees told us that they love that space.
* Angela and Erik help a lot to organize the speakers and board members.
* Mike organized a great hacking days extra.

The program can't be done without your help, I'm really really honored
to work with you guys!! Looking forward to work with you in the near future.

regards,

TzuChiang

TzuChiang Liou
Besides local team members and the program committee members, I know
some friends also help a lot (it's not a complete list, of course):

* Sandy, Craig, Guillaume and Christophe help Frances to organize many
interviews, a superb press conference. I already collected over 40 local
media coverage, that's amazing!
* Sandy, Delphine and Christophe take care of many international
sponsorship, give us more resource and energy to prepare the event.
* Aphaia and Cary promote the event and make this well-known among
communities.
* Austin and Christophe help Tim and local technical staffs to make
streaming possible.
* Jon Phillips and Alain help Mike to coordinate the HDE event
* there are some local bloggers help us during this event.
* and more...

The success of this event depends on the efforts from all participants,
either it's from local or global, wikipedian or wikipedian-to-be.
Personally I think the best thing in this event is to know friends from
all over the world, and working with you is definitely my best
experience, you make this an unforgettable memory, thanks.

regards,

TzuChiang

A million times, yes. It was a great event and raised the bar for
Wikimanias to come. Thanks to all who made it possible :-)
