Wikimania 2006 - August 4-6th, 2006

Wikimania 2006 was the second annual meeting for Wikipedians and anyone else interested in learning more about Wikipedia and/or wiki technologies in general. Last year, we met in a very nice youth hostel in Frankfurt Germany and people from all over the world met, often for the first time. Most people had an area of Wikipedia that they specialized in and the common thread was the enormous amount of time everyone devoted to making the site the success it is today. This year, the meeting was in Cambridge, Mass at the Harvard Law School campus.


Wikimania is the annual international conference of the Wikimedia community. Wikimania allows the community of Wikipedians, and the general public to learn more about Wikipedia and / or wiki technologies in general, and share their experiences face to face with free knowledge initiatives and events all over the world. Wikimania is organized by a different local WikimaniaTeam each year. In 2012, the conference took place in Washington, D.C., and the 2013 conference was hosted by Hong Kong. London is the home of the 2014 gathering.

Wikimania is funded primarily by the Wikimedia Foundation; with further additional funding from other local, national and international sponsors.
