My hotel was [City Hostel Geneva]. I recommend it, there is an Internet room with computers available but at extremely expensive rates. However, there is currently free wireless as well in some rooms and downstairs i n the lobby. (Sit near the television for good reception.) I do not know if the free wireless is intentional or not, but it worked just fine.

Hi, I am going to be in Warsaw Monday through Wednesday 'this week'. There is not much time for us to plan, but I would love to have a Wikipedia meetup while I am there. Jimbo Wales 22:02, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I will speaking at the Organization for Seucirty and Co-operation in Europe:

I will arrive in Warsaw at 12:00 on 11 October, Monday. So any wikipedia meeting will have to be in the evening, I think.
