OpenSym is a conference with both the ability and the guts to experiment. This time, we had a joint welcome reception with the Wiki Ed Foundation. The welcome reception is also the primary place to show posters and demos. We were curious as to whether the location, a house in the Presidio, would work, and it did so marvellously. The more cozy atmosphere of a house (than a dreary conference room) got people talking much more easily. Thank you, Wiki Ed Foundation, for making this happen!
