Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

The Wiki Quiz is intented to be a knowledge+ entertainment session, preferably for the Unconeference session. It can be planned as a 30-45 Minutes long session, with fun trivia largely about Wiki and Wiki cutlure and things around it. I had done a similar session in the recently concluded Wikipedia India Conference 2011 at Mumbai, and was one of the most appreciated and enjoyable session. While not deviating from the key theme of sharing knowledge, the Wiki Quiz intends to showcase how knowledge can be fun too.
