Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
  • At Wikimania Hong Kong it was determined that eight people had attended all nine Wikimanias. It is anticipated that all eight will be in attendance in London. This panel will invite all eight to share their experiences, both in relation to Wikimania and to Wikimedia projects in general. They will also be asked to comment on changes in Wikimedia over the last decade, and what has gone wrong and what improvements they would recommend. I expect that each panelist will speak for up to 5 minutes, and that this will be followed by a 20 minute question and answer session.
