For the 4th time WOK Fonder Erik Bolinder was attending being at Como Lake in Italy in 2016, Montreal in 2017, and in Cape Town in 2018 discussing and networking with the fantastic people who have created Wikipedia. What was unique was that the conference was held at the Stockholm University, the University that Erik Bolinder graduated in 1992. The main reception was in the Stockholm City Hall in the locations where the Bolinder Family had a large factory in the 19th Century.
