Wikimania, an annual global conference that celebrates the popular Wikipedia knowledge resource Website and its sister knowledge products, is coming to Montreal August 9-13.
The advancement of free knowledge, privacy and digital rights and the role of technology to further those objectives are at the core of the keynote and community submitted talks at Wikimania. If all you experienced is getting the occasional bits of information online from the free www.wikipedia.org Website, you are missing out on what made the grassroots Wiki concept a success – the fifth largest visited site on the Web.
Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, will be addressing the timely topic of “community and information in a partisan world.” There are five keynote sessions by worldwide experts, more than 100 community-submitted talks, and over a dozen workshops. Global software writers will also participate in a two-day hackathon producing innovative programs for the Wiki world.
