Wikimania 2009 in Buenos Aires kicks off this week!

Wikimania starts this week!  Today we reminded everyone about this year’s Wikimania here in Buenos Aires.  Most of the staff and Board are here in the city, as well as hundreds of project volunteers and stakeholders.  The local organizing crew and Wikimedia Argentina are doing a great job.
Follow the events of the conference on twitter and identi.ca, and keep an eye on the Wikipedia Weekly podcasts.  Hopefully we’ll have time to blog about events as they unfold at Wikimania.
We also want to thank all of our sponsors this year.  Without them we couldn’t pull events like this together: Telefonica, Terra, Speedy, The Richard Lounsbery Foundation, Answers.com, Kaltura, Wikimedia Deutschland, The Government of the City of Buenos Aires, Open Society Institute, wikiHow, Wikia, and Banco Credicoop.  Thank you!
More as the event unfolds…
Jay Walsh, Communications
