It’s more than a week after the 1st Anniversary Conference, however, I’m still quite pondering on the dinner that night. At the table I found kind of good memories of old days, about the gatherings. That’s what should the gathering be.
I do not really like the so called topics in these gathering much. Most of them can be discussed online. So I can hardly find reasons to repeat these Auld lang syne again, and again.
Gathering shall be light hearted, like the dinner that night. We talked about our personal emotions, shared something we recently read, exchanged a few about our philosophic ideas etc. That’s more enjoyable, and also more friendly to new comers, or even more attractive. Somehow, I think organizers shall be considerate. I wonder if such Auld lang Syne is durable for those who had worked or laboured for hours before this so called gathering.
However, about the recent turmoil on gathering, the consensuses this time is probably the poorest made I ever seen in the Wikimedia Community. Personally I don’t think it shall be proceeded, as it doesn’t seem to me there’s enough exposure for the decision making. I can do nothing but intend to refuse to attend such “gathering".
Finally, a big thank-you to all at the dinner-table on July 12. You confirmed my sense that I’m not in Akiba but Hong Kong.
