Welcome

Welcome to the official website for Wikimania 2008! Alexandria was the host to the Wikimania 2008 conference in the prestigious new Library of Alexandria (Bibliotheca Alexandrina).

If I dare list some of the things I loved more specifically, and which help making it what I consider was a *great* wikimania.
Most of the attendees were really wikimedians. Not swarms of journalists, nor curious visitors. There were many times I had this odd feeling we were on meta, or on this list, just chatting or trolling, simply face to face.
I think the central point was a little anthill where we could always find others, someone to talk to, something to look at, something to eat... It felt such a warm place. — Florence Devouard
