The summer may be over, but the memorable events and the inspiring ideas of the past few months carry on in the months and perhaps even years to come.

On our last episode we previewed the topics and goals of Wikimania 2017 in Montreal. Today, several weeks after the event, we look back at how it went and what it might mean for the future of the movement.  We do so with help from legendary Wikimedian David Richfield, who was not only in Montreal experiencing it all, he is also one of the people behind next years global gathering in Cape Town!
