O'Connor has recently started work on a new project documenting the wiki phenomenon. He began by attending Wikimania 1 in 2005 where he shot more than a dozen hours of footage, all of which is available online. All material of Wikimania is available, free of charge, for anyone to use. The hope for the end result is a "Wikimentary" - the first-ever user-generated and user-created film.
