So I registered for wikimania. I don't know anyone else going, but I'm going for all three days. I don't care. It's in Boston, I live 20 minutes away. It would be irresponsible not to go, right? But if anyone is in a similar boat, not knowing anyone and feeling nervous, at least you can know you're not the only one!
The first day was wonderful, except that I had to skip lunch and that chance to meet people due to prior commitments, and also had to leave the Enterprise MediaWiki session, which was one of the sessions I was most most interested in, because of prior commitments.
But lots of fun and lots of good good info. Hopefully I'll be able to be more relaxed tomorrow.
The second day was more relaxed, as I got to stay the whole day. I had some good one-on-one discussions, particularly at lunch, and very much enjoyed all the sessions I sat in on.
Enterprise session was the highlight of the conference for me. The rest of the day was kind of blah, but probably mostly because I was a bit worn out by this point.
