This weekend, HLS’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society co-hosts Wikimania 2006, the second annual Wikimedia conference. Berkman fellow and Wikipedia founder Jimbo Wales will open the conference this morning on the Harvard Law School campus.

Conference Mission: Both a scientific conference and a community event, Wikimania brings together members of the various Wikimedia projects in order to exchange ideas, build relationships and report on research and project efforts.
