It's a utopian idea to think that Wikipedia is written, edited and maintained by all who use it. But in reality, it's a dedicated (some might say nerdy) group of volunteers who act as the site's caretakers, protecting it from vandals and making sure its entries are as accurate as possible. Thus, they needed a place to convene, discuss and share ideas about all things Wiki. The international meetup, which began in Frankfurt, Germany, in 2005, took what was an unorganized group of volunteers and brought them together in one place each year. The conference now includes hundreds of participants from close to 70 countries around the world and includes speakers, workshops and of course, Jimmy Wales.
