Hi Marieke, 

Thanks for sharing this really great write up of Wikimania.  I was really disappointed not to be able to get there myself, so this is the next best thing! 

It sounds like education is very firmly at the heart of Wikimedia's mission, which I certainly see as a good thing.  

I'm also really interested to see the issue of reciprocity being discussed in relation to "free" and "open".  This comes up from time to time, but I think it warrants  greater exploration, particularly at a time when it's increasingly difficult for some colleagues to engage with voluntary and un-funded open education initiatives.
